I am looking for some global Friends to join with me in a mini Christmas around the World Project
It will only run from now until Christmas (25th Dec) and I am looking to teach my students about the value of Christmas around the World.
This is a great opportunity to teach each other about all the meanings behind christmas. We would like to learn about the religious meanings, the celebrations, traditional food, cultural dress, the weather at christmas in your countries and gift giving.
I have created this Wiki for the sharing of ideas, photos and collaboration https://christmasaroundtheworld2016.wikispaces.com
Each week I would like to Skype with a different school to find out about Christmas Around the World. Please email me if you are interesting in Skyping firstname.lastname@example.org
Christmas in Australia is about family, good food and celebrating. What a better place to find friends to share with my class than from the wonderful Global Community.
Task 1: Introduce your school in the introduction post
Task 2: Find your country and over the next 6 weeks tell us about Christmas in your Country.
Task 3: Make a digital presentation eg Powerpoint, Glogster, Voicethread, animato and embed to the wiki for all our friends to enjoy. Use photos, images, music etc to enhance your presentations.
Task 4: Send a christmas card in the mail to your new global friends.
Watch as your presentations are made public for all the world to learn about Christmas Around the World.
My class 3/4J are looking forward to collaborating with new friends around the world.
