The aims of our lesson are: • to meet with the text about M.F., his biography and his experiments • to discuss the information • to revise your grammar (Passive Voice) • to summarize the information
1.Read the words: • Michael Faraday • Electricity • Humphry Davy • Especially • Volta • Ampere • physist
2.Guess the meaning of the words: • Continent • Electricity • Magnet • Experiment • Scientist • Wire • Current
3.Check up your home task: • (Was, invented,when , telephone?)… • (What, 1908, was, by, invented, in, James Spangler?) … • (Developed, was, where, idea of cloning, the?)… • (Whom, the first, was, by, produced, petrol-driven, car, motor?)…
The correct variant: • When was telephone invented? • What was invented in 1908? • Where was the idea of cloning developed? • Whom was the first petrol-driven motor car produced by? • Telephone was invented in 1876. • The first vacuum cleaner was. • The idea of cloning was developed in Scotland. • It was produced by Karl Benz.
Michael Faraday (1791-1867) • Have you ever heard about M.F.? • What did he invent? • Do you think his experiments were really great?
5.Answer the questions: • What was F. interested in? • What role did books play in his life? • Why did he write a letter to Davy? • Did scientists know much about electricity at that time? • What did Faraday do? • Do you think his experiments were really great? • What has electricity done to our lives?
6.Write the sentences in the correct order: • Like all true scientists, F. wanted… • He wrote a letter… • F. sent a lot of time… • Davy and F. made a … • He got an electric current… • It was the beginning of the age..
Check yourself: • F. spent a lot of time playing in the streets during his early life. • Like all true scientists , F. wanted to make experiments. • He wrote a letter to sir Humphry Davy. • Davy and F. made a trip to the Continent to meet great scientists of other countries. • F. got an electric current by using a magnet. • It was beginning of the age of electricity.
