Newzy: Is Housework Real Work?

by | Jul 9, 2021

Check out more lesson plans and activities on work and society.

How much of the housework do you shoulder and do you think you deserve compensation? Maybe it depends on how much of it you share with your partner. In this NEWZY lesson, your students will learn about a Chinese couple who did not see eye to eye. Use this as an easy and fun discussion class which is bound to start a bit of debate.

It is based on authentic material from the BBC, contains a vocabulary exercise comparing take, make and do, and finishes with a fun activity where your students will associate financial compensation with some of their (least) favorite chores.
