Inside a Lion, a Poem by Shel Silverstein [PowerPoint]
An illustrated PowerPoint of Shel Silverstein's poem, "Inside a Lion." Humorous, just challenging enough for the intermediate English learner, with all the makings of a good poem, a good read, and a good opportunity to learn language in context. I used it with my adult learners, for whom thinking abstractly in English is really a stretch. The poem has a simple concept and after several repetitions, reading out loud, listening, and working on vocabulary, they got it. I included the word-fill listening activity on the last two slides. If anyone comes up with any additional activities to do with this poem, I'd love to hear.
