The United Nations
Today is Peace Day, an initiative organized by the United Nations
Our Lesson Plan Calendar reminded us that September 21 is Peace Day. According to the UN, this is “an opportunity for individuals, organizations, and nations to create practical acts of peace on a shared date.”
Today’s podcast offers an audio preview of our Famous Things lesson plan on The UN. Students learn about the history and basic operations of the United Nations, an organization that works hard to preserve peace. The full lesson comes with a warmup, a reading, comprehension and discussion questions, and a vocabulary review. These podcasts can be used for individual on-the-go listening practice or as a preview to the ESL-Library lessons that you plan to use in class.
If your students like talking about peace, why not try other lessons from our ESL Lessons for International Day of Peace. Listen to a sample audio from the series in a past podcast episode: Mother Teresa.
