In this ESL lesson plan for adults and teens, students watch a short informational report and do a listening exercise on "the Internet of Things" and what exactly it means. It includes discussion questions and conversation activities about the Internet, web-connected things, and how the Internet impacts our lives. Students learn some important vocabulary terms and phrases from the video. The post-viewing section includes activities on a quote from the video, vocabulary context usage, and rewriting sentences. The grammar activity features the usage of “What if...” + [present simple] to express a concern or to wonder about the consequences (negative impacts) of something. There are additional speaking tasks included, as well as a quiz and review section with a bonus activity.
