Localise the pictures e.g. Which park could this be in Dundee? Where can you give blood in Dundee? Do you know any charity shops in Dundee?
(15 minutes) Discuss what is happening in pictures literally e.g. what is he/she doing? And in terms of citizenship e.g why does a good citizen give blood? For lower level students check colours, clothes, simple verbs in present continuous e.g What is he/she wearing? What colour is it? What is he/she picking up? etc.
