Good list.I’d add five Japanese comedians and five Youtubers. Then write down those answers and the idols answers so you can use them in later activities.
Actually I like the way you've got it. It may be easier but I think kids should know terms like 'wife' or 'husband' or 'partner' so they can talk about the world around them and not just themselves. I find I have to point to my ring ever time I say 'wife' so the students understand it.
Ah that's a good point. It's probably easiest for them to think about it from their own perspective. I have some tinkering to do. Thanks for the tips!
That's cool. I think New Crown has the family vocabulary completely from the point of view of the kids. So its just brother/sister/sibling then mother/father and grandparents
I found out there are quite a few LGBT students at my school after I had them fill out a survey, and one of the questions on it was about this. After knowing that, I proposed this lesson idea to my JTEs and then got the OK from them. As for the family activity, I put "spouse" because wife/husband are also legal terms, but I think you're right. I think next year I'll delete husband/wife/spouse altogether and replace it with something simpler, like brother/sister/sibling.
