HAPPY AUSTRALIA DAY, MATE! : A cross-curricular project in the bilingual classroom


20130704-111108.jpg Happy Australia day is a cross-curricular and PBL ( Problem based learning ) project that sparks the children’s curiosity to learn about the history , culture & life in Australia. 8/9 year old Spanish children inmerse themselves in this amazing adventure of discovering and learning with a purpose: celebrating the Australia day in our Bilingual school. This willingness to learn will lead the children to pose lots of questions, find many ways to solve real- life problems, design a big book collaboratively, use technology to share their work with others ( other classes, parents, a facebook fan page and a school in Sidney) and much more. Thanks to our successful British Council bilingual project in our Primary school students learn the English language and culture of many English speaking countries all around the world through active methodologies, a range of curricular areas ( Literacy, History, Geography, Science, etc.) , a hollistic approach and the effective use of ICT ( Information and Communication Technologies). RIPPER!!!
