During the 1st term 5th graders have been learning about some interesting facts related to our world: hemispheres, countries, continents…
Learning in different ways is always a good idea, so one day they went to the computer classroom and worked in pairs in order to learn more things about the continents. They read an interesting text and, then, they did funny comprehension activities.
They also worked in groups in their classroom, using English Atlas and laptops for learning about the time zones.
After learning interesting things about the world, they focused on Australia. They had to answer some questions, and they decided to do that in cooperative groups.
