I have collected a very wide range of different National Day presentations I have created, from throughout the year, such as Science Day, Commonwealth Day, European Day of Languages, Mountain Day and Pancake Day, to name but just a few of them!
This teaching pack includes visual images of life in ancient China, how the Chinese celebrate their national day and a fun set of worksheets for people wanting to learn Cantonese. Please note the these language worksheets are in English and do not contain Cantonese.
I have created presentations about different aspects of living in harmony with other people from other nations. It is great for harmony day and also the International Day For The Elimination Of Racial Discrimination. I have included a range of different presentations of different countries around the world. You are able to compare and contrast lives in other places. I have included stories from India, as this is the largest ethnic minority in the UK, and I thought it would be nice to see the differences and similarities between the two countries. I have also included 2 presentations about the Brexit (Brexit Conversation Ideas and International Day For the Elimination of Racial Discrimination - which covers Britain pre- and post Brexit and its crime rates).
Are you looking for lots of different examples of countries and cultures from around the world? Perhaps some of your class could focus on each of the different countries shown in this list? A great way of starting a conversation and getting everyone interested in learning more!
