High Flying Chinese Acrobats with Let’s Go 6

Let's Go 6 cover

This past week I was teaching the Let’s Read section of Unit 6 in Let’s Go 6, which includes a story about a girl named Mei. Here’s the first paragraph:

“My name is Mei. I’m an acrobat. Everyone in my family is an acrobat, too. We perform with a circus. I’ve been a performer since I was a little girl… Every afternoon, I practice acrobatics with my family. I need strong arms and legs.”

Performers such as Mei just aren’t as amazing on the page when compared to the real thing so I found this CCTV broadcast with some real acrobats and played it on the big screen for the children.

I’ve watched it multiple times already but my heart still jumps at some parts. I think I’ll be including a link of it in my Unit 6 Worksheet Booklet (when it finally comes out, that is).

Do you teach Let’s Go 1-6 as well? If you do, check this out.
