Step 1 Lead-in (3 mins)
Greet students and ask students to sing a song“Old Macdonald Had a Farm”. After that, ask students “what animals can you hear in the song”, they may say “ chick, duck, pig and so on”. Then I will continue to ask them “ Do you know any other animals?Today Susan , Tom and Lucy will go to the zoo to find more animals.” In this way, I can lead in today’s topic.
(Justification: the song is closely related to the topic , so I can move to the next step naturally, and students’ interest will be easily attracted.)

Draw some simple pictures about animals “ monkey, elephant, panda” , and teach them how to read it, ask them to read after me for several times, after that I will show a picture about Susan, Tom and Lucy are going to the zoo, and ask students “ can you guess what animals they will find in the zoo?” ask them to read the passage to find the answer.
