THE 13-YEAR-OLD GIRL SENT ON A 'DAY-TRIP' TO AUSTRALIA

THE 13-YEAR-OLD GIRL SENT ON A 'DAY-TRIP' TO AUSTRALIA

This was an article originally found on the BBC, however, I have edited and changed the text a little to make it easier for non-native English speakers. I have added footnotes with the French translations. You could easily edit this to change to the appropriate language or simply delete the footnotes. This is accompanied by comprehension questions and a true or false activity that I created to check understanding of the article. This also goes with a flipchart I created on the early history of Australia which can be purchased on my page. My students really enjoyed reading this text as they were curious about the plight of Pamela and felt really sorry for her and what she, along with other unfortunate children, had to go through. Any feedback regarding how I have created the questions would be great!

AUSTRALIA - A NATION SHAPED BY BRITISH EMIGRATION

AUSTRALIA - A NATION SHAPED BY BRITISH EMIGRATION

I created this as part of my Australia scheme of work. In my school one class a week (55 minute lesson) is dedicated to Australia and this was an article from the BBC that I edited to make a bit shorter and a little easier. The text is still quite difficult though, so not for low ability classes! My students’ level is approximately B1-B2. Later I am going to upload more powerpoints on all things Australia. I created my own true or false and comprehension questions to go along with the text. I have also created footnotes with French translations for some difficult words; however, you could simply edit these words to the appropriate language or just delete the footnotes! Any feedback appreciated.

A basic guide to The Commonwealth (2018)

A basic guide to The Commonwealth (2018)

This is an introduction to The Commonwealth. It was originally created for middle school students in France with a level of approxinately B1. So I have purposely made the language quite simple. It has been updated for 2018: with the inclusion of The Gambia returning after leaving and the news that Prince Charles will be taking over The Queen as head (when she dies). I have created a Powerpoint for the teacher to be shown on the overhead projector, one to be printed out to give to the students with fewer slides (optional). I usually choose the option 4 slides per page when printing, so I don’t print out too many pages. There is also an activity to answer questions on the powerpoint which could be started in class then finished for homework, then a class test to be done on a different day. If you prefer you can skip the **each one, teach one **activity.

Easter Go Fish Card Game (have/have got)

Easter Go Fish Card Game (have/have got)

A card game to practice Easter vocabulary and have/have got in their various forms. To play: Divide students into groups of 4 or so and deal 4-5 cards each. The rest go in the middle and make the pond /pool/. On his turn, a player asks someone for a card (Have you got…? or Do you have…?) in order to get 4 of a kind (or 6, depending on how many cards you make). If the player has the card, he must hand it over and the player whose turn it is can ask anyone for another card. If the answer is negative, the player is told to go fish and to take a card from the pond and the next person asks for a card. When a player has 4 (or 6) of a kind, he sets them on the table and plays again. Continue until all the cards run out (all the cards have been grouped together into families according to their picture). The winner is the person with the most families. This worksheet contains two of each picture, so I would suggest printing it two or three times to form a set where students can get 4 or 6 of a kind. Enjoy!
