High school ESL lesson plan - introduction

Hello! This is the introduction lesson plan I used in my first high school esl class.

The PowerPoint used in this lesson is personal to me. So please edit it before you use it! 

Lesson aim.
To introduce yourself to the class. To start to build the students confidence in speaking English in front of people.

50 minutes

What you need.
Worksheet with space to answer all your questions. Space for the students to fill in the true or false  game.

What to do.
Activity one.
To get the students thinking about the topic, ask the class what questions they could ask a new person to find out information about them. (3 minutes)

Activity two.
Go through the quiz on the presentation. When doing this ask the students to read out every question. Go over the answers, go through each possible option asking the students to raise their hand if they thought it was that answer. (20 minutes)

Activity three.
Have the students write out three facts about themselves on the paper. Two facts should be true, one should be false. Have the students cut the true or false section from their worksheet, fold it and hand the paper in to you. Split the room into teams. Have one student come to the front and read out someones paper, in their teams the students should then try to guess which fact is false. (27 minutes)

* Low level modification. In my low level classes I used the exact same presentation, except for the slide about Manchester and the final slide about England.
For the game instead of true or false I asked the students to answer the following questions;
Where do you live?
Do you have any brothers or sisters?
What is your hobby?
What is your favourite food?
I then split the class into groups and asked one student to read out someones introduction. Each group then had to guess who the introduction belonged to.
