ESL English Lesson: The Ice Bucket Challenge
David Robinson

Recently, there’s been a lot of celebrities in the news doing the Ice Bucket Challenge, or Cold Water Challenge, as was its original name. ‘What is that?’ you ask.

It’s when famous people and ordinary people, who have been challenged by others, are filmed having a bucket of ice cold water poured over their heads. The lucky person then challenges others to do the same within a 24 hour period or forfeit by way of a financial donation of US$100. Most celebrities do both i.e. have the bucket of cold water and cough up with the money.

Speaking/Warm Up: Think of three things you know about the Ice Bucket Challenge. Go round the room swapping details with others. Speaking/Understanding: Students should look through the article with the teacher. 1) What is the article about? 2) What do you think about the article? 3) Was this an easy or difficult article to understand? 4) Was this a boring or interesting article? 5) Discuss the article. Roleplay, Homework, Grammar, etc.
