TP Worksheet – Flower Power

freely photocopiable

An unusual lesson on a global topic which gives students the chance to develop their fluency skills. Students discuss questions such as “Can you think of any edible flowers? Are flowers often used in dishes in your country?” and “What is the difference between ‘a bunch of flowers’ and ‘a bouquet of flowers’?”

Common idiomatic words and phrases such as “a bed of roses” and “to nip something in the bud” are explored and practised in a gap-fill exercise before moving on to discuss questions such as “Is it common in your country to name people after flowers?” and “Are there any flowers that have symbolic significance in your country?”
