Materials: Relative clauses crossword puzzles A and B, butcher paper, markers, tape, article review worksheet Anticipated Problems: These activities may take longer or shorter than expected. I havent used the crossword game before, so Im not sure how that will go, or how difficult it will be.

Contingency Plans (what you will do if you finish early, etc.): If the lesson finishes early, I will have students read the reading comprehension passage on pg 115-116 in the book and answer the questions at the end. If its running late, Activity 3 will be a good review and can be completed for homework.

Post-Lesson Reflections: Students really enjoyed all the activities. The crossword puzzle was a good review for relative clauses, and students really tried their best to write their own clues. The phrasal verb review game went extremely well. Students have written their own PV sentences before, but usually in small groups. This activity that involved the whole class constantly circling the room was very lively. In the end, there were some sentences that students couldnt figure out, which provided a good avenue for discussion. Todays class was a good indicator that students are ready for the midterm exam this coming Monday.
