Fireworks Lesson Plan – ESL Chemistry in Action

Hello everybody!

what is better than the sharing? Herewith you can find a nice activity (in this case in the form of an English test) to teach English through a CLIL activity about Fireworks. Personally, these activities were intended as a conclusion set of activities because, in the classroom, we have worked a lot on the specific vocabulary and on Chemistry in action thanks to my Chemistry colleague.

Hope it can be useful for you!

Enjoy with your classes.

A Career As An Automotive Technician

Hello everybody!

today at school we saw this video. After a Before watching activity LINK HERE I gave a While Watching activity (a chart to be filled in) to my students. It was particularly interesting, mainly the “strange” English accent, which we found out comes from New Zealand. However, the content was extremely stimulating, because it talks about the paths that lead to become an automotive technician in New Zealand, and the fact that this is a really required job all over the world.

And now an After Watching activity!

Your Next Pair of Adidas Sneakers Could Be Made By a Robot Near You — TIME

Automation, robots and new technologies. My dear students (class  5) READ THE FOLLOWING ARTICLE and then tell me what you think about automation in a broad sense. Pros and cons? For and against? We have gone through this topic during the year, and I strongly believe you have your own idea on the topic.

Waiting for your comments.

Adidas will begin producing shoes in Germany again in 2017, using robots to produce them quickly and locally. After more than 20 years since the company halted production in Germany, Adidas chief executive Herbert Hainer announced the opening of the 4,600 square-meter “Speed Factory,” according to an AFP report.
