The next batch of lessons2go is now available. Both involve the use of images. The activity for the younger children makes use of a paint package and the fill tool. There is scope for extending the task by using the airbrush tool as well. The MFL activity combines the taking of digital photographs with the use of callouts to create comic-like presentations.
This week we have activities for the following age groups:
Age 3-5: A Weather Vane and the Fill Tool
This lesson uses one of many activities in the 'Windy Weather' section of the Weather for Schools website. It makes use of an image of a cockerel which can be filled using the fill tool of a paint package. This lesson gives some ideas for extending this work.
Age 9-10: MFL, Shopping Comic Strip
In small groups, the pupils enact short scenes of role-playing shopping, asking for items of food and drink, and purchasing them. Using a digital camera and multimedia authoring software they capture still scenes of the role-play, to which 'speech bubbles', captions or 'callouts' are attached later as in a comic-strip format. These activities could be easily adapted for German and Spanish language teaching and learning.
