4. Go through the handout with them and explain words they do not understand. Using the list, play a game with the students. Call out any register/index number of a student and give him a gender noun. The student has to come up with the opposite gender. Let him refer to the handout if necessary.
Classroom Activities / Assessment (10 min)
1. Let the students complete Exercise 28 and 29 of Learning Vocabulary Workbook 1, pages 64 – 65 on their own.
2. Facilitate the students’ learning by walking around to check their answers.
Additional Activities / Closure (15 min)
1. Divide the students into pairs. Give each pair a list of gender nouns. Get them to cut out the words and match the opposite gender nouns. Get them to stick the words on paper before drawing the pictures of the gender nouns.
2. Encourage each pair to come up with two more gender nouns and their opposite gender that are not on the list given.
3. Let them share their work with the class.

Optional Activities
1. Explain what a family tree is to the students. Show them an example by giving each student a copy of a family tree as a reference. Get the students to draw their own family tree or a make-believe family. Ensure that there is a header such as ‘Tom’s family tree’. Students need to write the relationships between the people in the tree. For example, if they put ‘Mary’, they need to write ‘mother’ or ‘aunt’ below the name.
2. Let them share their family tree with the class. 3. You may want to pin the students’ family trees on the ‘Writer’s Wall’. 4. Alternatively, you may want the students to create their own ‘Opposite Gender’
book. Let them decorate the book and write opposite genders for both people and animals. Let them use pictures from newspapers or magazines or pictures printed from the computer as well as photographs or drawings to illustrate the different words.
