TWO PARTS OF EARTH

THE NORTHERN HEMISPHERE

The earth is split in the middle3 by an invisible4 line called the equator5. The part above the equator is called the northern hemisphere6 and the part below it is the southern hemisphere. THE EQUATOR

WHAT'S IN EACH HALF?

All of North America and Europe, and most of Asia and Africa are in the northern hemisphere. New Zealand, Australia, and most of South America are in the southern hemisphere. About 90% of the earth’s population* lives in the northern hemisphere. It’s also where most of Earth’s land is. But the southern hemisphere has much more water.

THE SOUTHERN HEMISPHERE

SEASONS7 AND WEATHER

The seasons in the northern and southern hemispheres are opposite to each other. So when it’s summer in America and Britain from the end of June to the end of September, it’s winter in Australia and New Zealand. In July, Americans go swimming and Australians go skiing. From the end of December to the end of March it’s summer in Australia and winter in America. While Australian children enjoy hot summer days in December, American children play in the snow and wait for Santa Claus. WINTER (THE NORTHERN HEMISPHERE TILTS AWAY FROM THE SUN)

Lesson Plan 1

DECEMBER WHY?

The seasons are opposite because of earth’s movement8. In June the northern hemisphere tilts towards9 the sun and the days become longer and warmer. Plants also bloom10 and trees grow back their leaves. When that happens11, the southern hemisphere tilts away12 from the sun, so it’s winter there.

DECEMBER IN AUSTRALIA

SUMMER HOLIDAYS

The school summer holiday in America starts in June and ends in August. In Britain it goes from July to August or September. In New Zealand and Australia the summer holiday goes from December to January or February. VOCABULARY

OUTDOOR FUN

In the summertime, children in both hemispheres do lots of different outdoor activities. In Australia children go snorkelling13 and surfing. In New Zealand they go hiking14 and do watersports like kayaking. In America children play team sports like baseball and go camping. In Britain they go to the seaside or to a summer camp*. Summertime is when children everywhere relax away from school and go on trips with their families. So children everywhere get really excited for summer. TASK

A RIDDLE What Am I?

The part of the earth below the equator is called the northern hemisphere. Ninety per cent of the earth’s sand is in the northern hemisphere. From December to March, it’s winter in Australia and New Zealand. In June, the earth’s northern hemisphere tilts away from the sun. The summer holiday in America starts in December. From December to April, it’s summer in South Africa.

PREPOSITIONS OF TIME

Wait. What? Yes, it is. Not here. For us, it is the summer solstice, the shortest night and the middle of summer. For everyone in the southern hemisphere3, it is the longest night. N

A POLAR DAY (6 MONTHS OF DAY)

Long Northern Days On June 21st in the Czech Republic and Slovakia, the sun will rise4 at 4:52 a.m. and set at 9:15 p.m. The sun will shine5 for 16 hours and 24 minutes. That’s a long day. But further north, the sun shines for even longer. The northernmost6 town in the world is Longyearbyen in Norway. There, it is already midsummer day7. The sun rose in April and will shine for 124 days. Yes, that’s days, not hours. It’s colder than here, though. Last year on midsummer day, we had temperatures8 of about 30˚. In Longyearbyen, it was less than 10˚.

Long Southern Nights The southernmost9 town in the world is Puerto Williams in Chile (it’s even further south than New Zealand). Puerto Williams is about the same temperature in June as the Czech Republic and Slovakia in December. It doesn’t snow often, but it rains a lot. There are no towns further south, but there are people. Hundreds live at McMurdo Research Station10 in Antarctica. Their sunset11 was at 1:39 p.m. on April 24th and sunrise12 will be at 12:33 p.m. on August 19th.

Countries Without Summers So when it is summer here, it is winter in the south, right? Well, yes and no. Countries close to the equator13 don’t have winter and summer. They have a dry season and a wet season. For the tropical countries north of the equator, it is hot and wet in June. For the ones south of the equator, it is hot and dry in June.

Young Elizabeth The Queen was born in London on April 21st 1926. Her full name is Elizabeth Alexandra Mary Windsor. She and her younger sister never went to school. They studied at home. Sounds great, right? When Elizabeth was just six years old, she got a cottage4 as a present. It sounds like the perfect ELIZABETH life, but Elizabeth wasn’t a typical WITH HER 5 princess. She is the only female royal MOTHER 6 to join the army ; she was a truck driver and mechanic in the Second World War7. ELIZABETH JOINS THE ARMY

Becoming Queen Elizabeth became Queen Elizabeth II in 1952, when she was just 25 years old. Her coronation* in 1953 was the first one ever on television. Over 25 million people in the UK watched Elizabeth become queen on television. THE CORONATION

Anime Cool Anime is an animation style from Japan. There are anime films, and there are lots of television shows. Some shows have hundreds of episodes. They usually tell exciting stories with lots of action1. Often they have magic2. Other films or television shows are quieter stories, beautiful and sometimes sad. Here are some of our favourites. TASK A B C D

Can you guess the names of the series and films? Write A–D in the right box.

Ronja, the Robber’s3 Daughter (series) (= Ronja, dcera loupežníka) The Secret4 World of Arrietty (film) (= Arrietty ze světa půjčovníčků) Digimon Universe5: App Monsters (series) (= Digimon Universe: Appli Monsters) Bleach6 (series, films) Arrietty is about little people (as big as your thumb7) who live under our floors. They “borrow” our things. All human8 things are big for them. A pin9 is a sword10 – perfect for fighting a big beetle. Ichigo Kurosaki can see ghosts11. He uses a magic sword to help a girl, Rukia, to fight the Hollows, which are evil (= zlý) monsters. The story is about his normal life at home and school and his secret life as a magical12 hero13. It’s very exciting, and often funny. Ronja is the only child of the chief14 of a group of robbers. When she is old enough, she goes into the forest. She has adventures there and meets magical creatures15. She learns to live in the forest. Then she meets the son of another robber chief, and everything changes. It is 2045. The internet is now a world for “appmons” (app monsters), which are born in mobile apps. One day, a schoolboy called Haru Shinkai finds an appmon in his smartphone. They become friends. They must stop the bad Leviathan, who is making viruses to make all the appmons bad.

WHY DO MOTHER S HAVE A “DAY”? Ann Reeves Jarvis...

worked very hard for peace1. During a war2, she was a nurse for soldiers3. She started clubs so women could learn to be healthy.

What Happened?

Ann’s daughter wanted to say “thank you” to her mother for her care4. She asked the US president to make a holiday for mothers. Then everyone could thank their mothers. And in 1914, he did.

When Is Mother’s Day?

Today, people have Mother’s Day in many countries: the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, even China. And in most EU countries, including5 the Czech Republic and Slovakia. This year it’s on May 12th here. In the UK, “Mothering Sunday” was on March 31st. Not Only for Mothers You can also wish a happy Mother’s Day to grandmothers, aunts, sisters, or any other woman who has children.

TASK 1

We take our mother to a restaurant or we cook her favourite meal (and we wash the dishes). In many families, mothers get flowers, chocolates and home-made cards. These are all good ways to say “Thanks, Mum!”

FUN FACTS:

►► The word mum is about 150 years old. It came from mama, about 500 years old. ►► Almost every language has a word like mum for mother. For example: matka (Czech), Mutter (German), mãma (Chinese), mama (Swahili), Mut (ancient Egyptian7).

Put the words into the right order8. Make questions 1–4 and write them on the lines9. Unscramble10 the words A–G. Match the questions with the right answers.

1 you / mum / What / give / can / your / ? _______________________________________________ 2 is / 2019 / May 12th / What / ? _______________________________________________ 3 What / say / can / you / ? _______________________________________________ 4 do / can / What / you / ? _______________________________________________

the FIRST MOON LANDING 1 The Race2 to the Moon In the 1950s and 1960s, the Soviet Union (= Sovětský svaz) and the US were in a “space3 race”. The Soviet Union was first to get to space, but on July 20th 1969, US astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin were the first people on the moon. This year, NASA* made a new logo to celebrate4 the 50th anniversary5 of the moon landing.

Here are some FUN FACTS about the moon landing.

1 A Famous Mistake When Neil Armstrong walked on the moon for the very first time, he was supposed to6 say “This is one small step7 for a man, one giant8 leap9 for mankind10.” But he made a mistake. He forgot one word, and said, “one small step for man”. Since “man” and “mankind” are both old ways11 to say “humanity12”, it made some people very confused13.

2 The Changing Flag The astronauts left some things on the moon: footprints14, some tools15 and an American flag. This was to show that the US was first on the moon and winners of the space race. But 50 years is a long time. Today, the colours on the flag are bleached16 away by the sun, and the flag is totally white. A white flag means peace17. Isn’t that nice?

What do you like doing when the weather is hot and the sun is shining1? Do you go swimming? Do you go canoeing2? Are they too boring for you?

Today there are many new water sports. Some are exciting and adventurous 3. Some are more relaxing. Do you know any?

KITEBOARDING

What Is It?

Kiteboarding is a very exciting sport. You stand on a short board4. You wear a harness5. The harness is connected to a kite and the kite pulls you over the water. The kites are much bigger than normal kites. They are between 5 and 15 metres long. You inflate6 them. When you are on the sea, you can jump over waves. When the wind is strong you can fly. In competitions7 people jump and fly and do tricks. When it is cold you can still kiteboard. Some people stay on the beach. They sit in a small kart8. The kart is connected to the kite and the kite pulls the kart across the sand. The good thing about kiteboarding is that you can do it anywhere – you just need wind. So kiteboarders fly and jump with their boards from Scotland to the islands of Hawaii.

Being the Best

There are many kiteboarding competitions around the world. It is a very young sport. The competitions are mostly free-style9. This means that they judge10 entrants11 on how they jump over waves and fly, and the tricks they do. It’s a bit like snowboarding jump competitions but on water with very strong winds. In 2024 in Paris kiteboarding will be one of the Olympic sports for the first time.

The Czech Republic and Slovakia

In the Czech Republic people kiteboard on lakes like Lipno, Rozkoš, Nechranice and Nové mlýny. The sport is becoming popular in Slovakia, too, in places like Gabčíkovo-Nagymaros reservoir12, Liptovská Mara and Vel’ká Domaša. Unfortunately13, the waves aren’t as big as on the sea, but the wind can be strong. Do you want to try it? Maybe kiteboarding seems too dangerous for you. But there is another new water sport. It is calmer14 and more relaxing. What is it? 22

THE MYSTERY OF THE MISSING MONKEY BACK TO THE BEGINNING

Someone took Lagun, the little squirrel monkey1, from the zoo. It’s time to talk to the zookeeper2 again. I think I know who has the monkey now.

TASK 1

The zookeeper looks very sad. She knows why we’re here. To finish her story, fill each gap3 with on, at, or in. Some of the words have wrong letters in them. Circle the wrong letters4.

“Hello, detective. Yes, I took Lagun. He was supposed to5 go to a different zoo. But he’s my best friend. I was so sad. So I made a plan to take Lagun and hide him. I did it ............ Thhrsday. ............ the morning, I came to werk, just like I do every day. I borrowed my husband’s cir. He was in the hospital anyway, so he didn’t need it. I startsd working ............ eight o’clock. I had my usual linch ............ noon. Normally I go hone ............ the atternoon, ............ five o’clock, but ............ this day I only went to the cah and waited. ............ the evening, the guards6 closed the zoe. They were watching, but I have the keys, so it was eazy to go insode with the car. I knew that the guard takes a break ............ ton o’clock ............ nikht, so that’s when I ded it. I drove the car to the menkey cage7 and opened it with my keys. Lagun was pappy to see me. I put hem in the car and drove rim to a secret8 plase. I stayed with him oll night. ............ the morning I starfed working. I pretended9 to be sad that Lafun was missing. Di you understand, deteccive? I can’t let my best freend go away.”

TASK 2

The zookeeper doesn’t want to say where Lagun is hiding. Look at the wrong letters you circled in Task 1. Write them on the lines10 to find the monkey.

We worked hard, we used our brains11, we solved12 the mystery, and now we can bring Lagun to his new home. It’s bigger than his old one, and he’ll have many new monkey friends. Great work this year, detectives!
