Part 1. Warming up Step1. Lead-in Good morning, everyone. Today we’ll move on to model 2 unit 1 Cultural Relics. Before our class, I’d like to share some pictures with you. Could you name them out? They belong to the same family——“Cultural Relics”. 1) Do you know what cultural relics are? 2) Who have the right to confirm and classify them? Keys for reference: 1). Cultural relics are physical remainders of what different people valued in the past and continue to value now. It can also be said that cultural relics are more than works of art, they are symbols of history and the people who lived in the past. 2) Only an international professional organization from UN has the authority to confirm and classify them.
Step2. Discussion Now, boys and girls, I met a “moral dilemma”. That means I must make a choice between the interests of the family and the interests of the society. Things are like this: My old granny happened to find an ancient vase under the tree in the earth of our gard en. It’s so beautiful and special. Now, my family fell into a moral dilemma.
Can you help us to make a decision: 1) What should we do? 2) Can we keep it for ourselves or report it to the government? 3) Have you come across such a situation — to make a difficult choice? Keys for reference: 1,2,3 questions can be answered in all kinds of ways. The answers are flexible. In a larger sense, it can be said that all the cultural relics belong to all peoples and whole societies, not a certain individual. Part 2 Pre-reading
Working in groups of four and telling your group mates: A. What do you know about the substance of “amber”? B. What do you know about the cultural relics “the Amber Room”? Keys for reference: A: I am from group 2. From the knowledge we got from biology and chemistry, we know “amber” is a semi -precious stone used in jewelry and art world. Amber is really the fossil form of resin from trees. It has got its shape after a process that has taken millions of years to complete. Trees in very ancient forests produced this resin, which slowly dropped from trees and was buried. Trees use resin to protect themselves from disease and harm caused by insects and fungi.
B: I am from group 6. From the information of history legends and news reports, we know the Amber Room is a room built by lots of ambers. It was a gift given to Peter the Great, the King of Russia, by the King of Prussia, Frederick William I. It was given the name because almost thousand tons of natural ambers were used to make it. But during the second world war in 1941, the Nazi German army secretly stole the Amber Room and sent boxes of the Amber Room on a train to a German city. After that, what really happened to the Amber Room remains a mystery. Step2. While-reading
