связей (физика, информатика, история);
приобщить учащихся к истории развития техники и технологий;
формирование интереса к достижениям человечества и внимательное отношение ко всему
Обеспечение урока:
магнитная доска,
задания на отдельных листах для каждого учащегося с указанием сайтов,

Ход урока
1. Учитель просит посмотреть учащихся на доску и прочитать слово ‘Eurika!’. Учитель спрашивает
о происхождении этого слова. Учащиеся дают ответ.
УЧЕНИК1 – слово произошло от древнегреческого ‘EURIKA’, что означает ‘I have found it!’ Архимед
сделал открытие, принимая ванну: на всякое тело, погруженное в жидкость действует
выталкивающая сила, направленная вверх и равная весу вытесненной им жидкости.
Archimedes principle a scientific rule which says that an object placed in water will be affected by a
force pushing upwards that is equal to the weight of the water moved by the object.
T ‘This example shows that some inventions can be made unexpectedly, just by chance or because of
someone’s mistake. Can you give some examples proving the idea?
P1 Yes. As I remember Dmitry Mendeleyev saw the table of chemical elements in his dream and then
he wrote it.
P2 There is such a legend that Isaac Newton discovered the law of gravity with the help of an apple.
One day he was sitting in the garden under an apple tree and when an apple fell down and hit his head,
he began thinking about the reason of the apple falling.
T Look at the table. You can see a bowl covered with a napkin. Guess what is inside it. Ask me some
questions about it.
P1 What size is it?
T It can be either small or large.
P2 What colour is it?
T It can be green, yellow, red.
P3 Is it eatable?
T Yes, it is. And it is very tasty.
P4 Is it a fruit or a vegetable?
T It’s a fruit.
P5 “Is it an apple?
T Yes, my congratulations! And it has helped to make a discovery the law of universal gravity as you
have said.
3. Разделить детей на три группы. Каждому ученику дается лист с задниями.
T Work in groups. Put the following in order from the most useful (1) to the least useful (7): bubble gum,
the theory of relativity, the printing press, corn flakes, the hula hoop, tea, the opener.
Pupils are given 3 minutes. After completing the task they give their answers and explain why they have
put the inventions in this or that order.
T Group1; Group2; Group3.
4. T Match the inventions above to these inventors:
Will Keith Kellogg, Emperor Shen Nung, Albert Einstein, Walter E. Diemer, Ezra Warner, Johann
Gutenberg, Richard P Knerr.
Pupils use their knowledge they got at the lessons of physics, history, geography and ability to think
logically. They work in groups. The teacher asks the groups’ ideas in 2-3 minutes. Pupils use the phrases:
“I think”, “I’m sure”, “I’m not quite sure, but I think”.
5. Online.
T Check your answers to the previous exercise. Use the site http://www.ideafinder.com and click
‘Enter’, then ‘History facts and myths’ on the left in the menu. ‘Inventor profile’. The teacher gives 3-5
minutes. Then pupils take their seats at the desks and give the right answers. Pupils work individually.
Will Keith Kellogg corn flakes
Emperor Shen Nung tea
Albert Einstein the theory of relativity
Walter E. Diemer bubble gum
Ezra Warner the can opener
Johann Gutenberg the printing press
Richard P Knerr the hula hoop
6. T Continue working on the same site: http://www.ideafinder.com and find the inventions for the
categories given in the table and add inventors’ names and years where possible. Say ‘how’ these
inventions help us. The teacher gives 10 minutes for this work. Pupils work individually and find two
inventions for each category.
The table
Invention 1
Invention 2
1. Inventions help us expand our universe ‘How’
2. Inventions help us live healthier and longer: ‘How’
3. Inventions help us communicate with one another
4. Inventions make our life easier
5. Inventions help entertain us
6. Inventions take us from one place to another
7. Pupils take their seats at the desks after finding necessary information in the Net. They read their ideas
and give their comments to each invention. Other pupils add some more details if they have found the
information about the same invention.
8. There is a quotation on the blackboard. The teacher draws pupils attention to it. “What people say you
can’t do , you try and find that you can” Henry Theogeau.
T I know that not averybody has the Net at home, but you’ve tried and have found that you can use it.
That’s great.
9. T Look at the blackboard. You can see the words denoting different technologies. Read them after
me and tell me what you know about them. The words are: nanotechnology, microelectronics, futurology,
nuclear physics, engineering.
T P1, P2, P3, P4, P5.
If pupils don’t know anything about some technologies, the teacher says that they will find about them in
the text which they should read at home.
10. Home tasks to read the text ‘Futurology’. The teacher gives it to each pupil. It is from the book “New
Opportunities. Upper Intermediate.” Module №5 lesson 18, p. 56.
11. The teacher gives apples from the bowl to pupils and says:
“I hope that you will make some discoveries or inventions using these new technologies. Ad maybe, this
apple will help you to do it.
Thank you for the lesson.!
Good bye!”
