A memory game is a funny way to learn vocabulary. School year is almost over in most of the countries. Have students review occupations while having fun, matching pictures with the correct words.Comments are appreciated. Playing the Game The first player chooses a card and carefully turns it over. Be sure not to bother the surrounding cards. The player then selects another card and turns it over. If the two cards are a matching pair for example two Jacks then they take the two cards and start a stack. The player is awarded another turn for making a match and goes again. If the cards are not a match they are turned back over and it is now the next players turn. The next player chooses their first card and turns it over. If it is a match for one of the cards the previous player turned over then they try to remember where that matching card was and turn it. If they are successful at making a match they place the cards in their stack and choose another card. If the first card turned over was not a match for one previously turned over the player selects another card in an attempt of making a pair. If they are unsuccessful in making a match they flip the cards back over and play is passed to the next player. A players turn is not over until they are unable to make a matching pair. The game continues in this fashion until all the cards are played.

Notre Dame Cathedral with Google Earth Tours

Notre Dame Cathedral with Google Earth Tours

Tour Notre Dame de Paris Cathedral with Google Earth Tours Make a virtual field trip to Notre Dame Cathedral, one of the world’s most famous landmarks. You will be using Google Earth to watch a pre-recorded tour of the famous church located in the heart of Paris. Learn all about Notre Dame of Paris and its neighboring structures. Making cameo appearances on the trip are the Arc de Triomphe, the Eiffel Tower and the Louvre, to name just a few. The product includes a document of about 25 talking points and interesting facts about the historic tourist attraction. The tour is also accompanied by a PDF file that describes what you are seeing based on the corresponding minutes in the video. This is so you can pause the tour at the given time stamp and let the class know what they are looking at. 1. For example the document says at, “3:02 – 3:15 – At this point, the tour zooms in to look at the western façade of the cathedral. a. The tower on the left is called the Tour Saint Romain and it’s 
about 400 years older than its neighboring tower, called the 
Tour de Beurre. 
 b. Tour Saint Romain was burnt down and its bells were melted in 1944 after a WWII bombing. It has since been restored.” The tour begins with a view of Europe from outer space. You are then zoomed in to the site’s location to see it from a variety of different viewpoints. The angles are chosen so the students can get a good idea of the structure’s location within Paris, as well as, its physical relationship to other landmarks in its vicinity. Finally, you are taken back out to a long shot of Europe. * Your computer must have Google Earth to watch these tours. Feel free to visit some other famous landmarks in North America. 1. The Golden Gate Bridge (3:29) 2. Chichen Itza (5:38) 3. Niagara Falls (2:10) 4. Panama Canal (3:02) 5. Statue of Liberty (2:07) 6. Gateway Arch in St. Louis, Missouri (1:06) 7.

Victorian Bundle

Victorian Bundle

This is my Victorian bundle. It is an interesting collection of different resources. In some ways, Victorians were similar to us, in other ways, they held very different opinions to modern Britons. These presentations are a great way to get the students talking in the classroom. They can discuss the dresses and toys and guess what the different household objects were used for.
