Lesson Plan Text

Prepositions of Position- Things in Common
Work in groups of three or more. Choose just one person from your group and try to find 
something that you both have in the same position by using questions like those below. If 
you find something in common, you can say 
“So is mine”/ “So are mine”/ “Mine too”. The 
other person or people in your group will give you from one to three points depending on 
how detailed and surprising your things in common are. For example, you might get only 
one point for both of your sofas being in the living room, but three points for both of your 
mothers being in New York. You get no points if the second person says 
“I don’t have one”,
“I don’t have any”, “I don’t know”, etc or if the person who asked the question has to 
respond to the answer with 
“Really? Mine…”, etc. 
 different = 0 points
 the same but not surprising = 1 point
 the same and a little surprising = 2 points
 the same and very surprising = 3 points
