I'm so close to finishing my course. I've done well with all my lesson plans so far. However teaching with limited resources has me puzzeled. It is not the resources that is catching me out but the lesson.
Imagine you are going to teach the vocabulary of kitchen items to a pre-intermediate class of young adults. The classroom has minimal furniture, rows of desks fixed to the floor and a blackboard. All students have pens and paper. There are no textbooks or technical equipment available. The only materials you can use are those which you and your students own or which you have created with your own hands. Neither you nor your students have had the opportunity to use a printer or photocopier. Plan a 45 minute lesson.
These are the words I have chossen
Spoon, Knife, Fork, Plate, Cup, Bowl, Glass
Table Chairs Sink Fridge Cooker Cupboard
Pot ,Frying Pan ,Dish ,Wooden spoon ,Chopping knife
THIS IS WHAT I HAVE DONE SO FAR
Prep & Aids:

Flash Cards with pictures.
Lead in: T-S 5 minutes.
Sit at the back of the class and ask one of the students if they would like some tea.
Walk up to your desk and pretend to make a cup of tea. Then pass them the cup. 'There is your cup'.
Then hold up the cup and say 'cup'. Drill the word cup two or three times. then ask another student would they like a glass of water. Pour them some imaginary water into the glass.
At this stage the students will be watching you and intrigued.
walk along the pictures pointing to them and drilling them chorally.
then draw a picture on the board. Let the students stand up and walk around to see the pictures then ask them what is it.
In groups of 4 have each student draw 5 pictures. Assign each student a colour.
After each student has drawn their 5 pictures they must swap with one person in their group and label the pictures.
Presentation:T-S T-S 10 minutes
Group the pictures into three groups
(Divide the board into three columns)
