Teacher: The next task is to answer the questions: “What is the difference between these houses and
what is the similarity between them?
Answers of pupils
Teacher: There is one common feature between houses. It is the place that gives to the family warmth. In
semi-detached house it is fireplace, in izba it is oven (pech) and in kuvaksa it is fire.
Pupils’ answers
Teacher: We can guess that the fire is the symbol. The question is...the simbol of what. It is the symbol
of comfort, protection, unity and warmth.
I think that home becomes castle when it has fire in it.
Now, please, let’s return to our question: “What do you think the word “castle” means in saying” “My
home is my castle”?
Pupils’ answers
Teacher: Castle is safety, defence, comfort. What house can be a castle to you? Where you feel safety,
comfort and defence? We will use our simbol fire.
I will put my fire to my home because only in my home I feel myself safety.
I woud like you to know more about the other types of the houses. To know what are they? And what are
their special features?
Pupils’ answers
Teacher: Very good! You hometask is to choose one type of the house. Find the information about it and
continue filling our table. Be ready to tell about this house!
