P2: The American flag is often called "The Stars and Stripes". There are three colours on the flag of the United States — red, white, and blue. As there are fifty states in the United States, there are fifty stars on the American flag: one star for each state.

   The American flag has thirteen stripes. The stripes are red and white. The     flag has seven red stripes and six white stripes. There is one stripe for each of the first thirteen colonies of the United States.

   People must know many things about the flag, for example: you should display it only during the day and you should fold it in a special way. In some schools there is a flag in each classroom, and children stand in front of the flag every day. You can see the American flag in shops and offices, in the streets and squares, in small towns and in big cities. You can see pictures of the American flag in newspapers and magazines. Americans are proud of their flag and display it in many places.

T: Mickey Mouse says that the statue of Liberty is one of the first things you see, when you arrive in New York by sea. Ilnaz, what you can say about it.

P3: One of the most famous symbols of the USA is the Statue of Liberty. France gave the statue to America in 1884 as a symbol of friendship. The Statue is in New York on Liberty Island. It is one of the first things people see when they arrive in New York by sea.

In my country, we are friendly.

In my country, we are friendlier.

In my country, we're the friendliest of all.

    In my land, it is sunnier.

    In my land, it's the sunniest of all.

    In my land, the skies are blue.

    In my land, they're bluer.

    In my land, they're the bluest of all.


My country, your country,

travel east or west.

If north is good and south is better,

which land is the best?

    In my land, the grass is green.

    In my land, it is greener.

    In my land, it's the greenest of all.

    In my land, it is peaceful.

    In my land, it's more peaceful.

    In my land, it's the most peaceful of all.


My country, your country,

travel east or west.

 If north is good and south is better,

which place is the best?

My country, your country,

travel east or west.

Learn to live with one another...

One world is the best.

One world is the best.

VI. Let’s learn a new poem “Friends”

(by Larry Groce)

The stars are out, the moon is up.

 It's time to go to bed.

I'm so glad you have a place

To lay your little head.

   Have a deep and peaceful sleep,

   Dream away the hours.

   When you wake the sun will come

   To smile upon the flowers.

Go to sleep, my little friend,

Beneath the evening star.

You will always have a friend,

 No matter where you are.  

- Please, read and say what the poem is about.

- Do you like it?

P: Beneath, matter, lay.  (отработка слов)
