2.en.26. Template for “Families around the world project”. Objectives of the project

By Friday the 5th of March, we shall have finished this project “FAMILIES AROUND THE WORLD”.

  • The aim of the project is to investigate on the similarities and differences of families from all over the world and to expand what we learnt about family life in Senegal and in the USA.
  • We shall revise how to locate a country in the map and learn a few relevant facts such as size, location, population, wealth, languages, religion and see whether these aspects have a reflection on family life.
  • We shall also learn how to describe a family in terms of  looks, age and clothes.
  • We shall learn some useful words and expressions to describe photos and people doing things.
  • We shall learn some new vocabulary related with jobs and with household chores.
  • We shall learn to compare different families  and use comparatives and adjectives to do so.
  • We shall learn to draw some conclusions from what we observed in the photos and what what we learnt about the countries.
  • We shall learn to work in group and to collaborate in order to make a “single” Power Point Presentation, using Google docs as a tool.
  • We shall use the Power Point to do an oral presentation and  improve oral presentation techniques.
  • We shall use this project as a starting point for our third term theme: “habits and diet“.
  • I have already sent you an invitation to share this Power Point through Google docs. You will be working in groups of three, each group will be responsible for three countries. There is a list of 30 countries and photographs you will be working with in the power point. I will tell you how to organize the groups.

    This is a copy of the initial document I sent to you. I will give you further instructions during our lessons.
