Top 25 Jobs in Canada: A One Page Webquest

Top 25 Jobs in Canada: A One Page Webquest

Are you covering a work or employment theme in your classes? Have your students learn about the top 25 jobs in Canada, according to a popular media website! This one page (okay, one page double-sided) webquest directs your students to a popular website to answer questions about the top jobs in Canada. The website has been running this feature yearly for some time now, so you can be sure it will run for some time in the future. What does this webquest offer your students? It tackles the issue of “you can not be what you can not see’.” If you’re working with newcomers to Canada as I am, you’re probably aware that many of them simply don’t know what jobs are out there. Well, this webquest addresses that. It also works on the skills of following instructions, comprehending information, and reproducing information. It helps develop skimming skills and the ability to identify key information. Who is this webquest for? It’s primarily aimed at English language learners from CLB 2-4, but it could also be used in elementary school classes. It could also be used at higher levels: while the language is simple, the content is not. Anything I should know? Webquests require a lot of explicit guidance at first. When I start doing them, I usually take students the process of answering the first one or two questions, step by step. You can never be too obvious when showing students how to complete them. Anything else? For your convenience, an answer key has been provided. The web site has been confirmed active and in use as of 2018-04-15. Feedback is appreciated! :)

Match it! - emotional literacy, emotional intelligence, mental health, emotions

Match it! - emotional literacy, emotional intelligence, mental health, emotions

This is a matching game using emotions from different nationalities. Of course it has the underlying message that we all feel emotions no matter who you are, where you live or whatever your skin colour is. Included in the pack: A game board A feelings mat in colour and black and white worksheets covering all the emotions shown in boy version and girl version Each child throws a die and moves that number of places. If they land on a ‘child’ they must match that emotion to their mat. They can circle it on their mat with a dry wipe pen. Encourage them to name the emotion. This could be extended to ‘Tell me a time when you felt like that’. If they land on an instruction then they must move that number of places either forwards or backwards. The winner is the person who has circled the most emotions on their mat when everyone has reached the end of the game board. The feelings mat could also be used as an emotional register or a prompt for including emotions in their writing. There is a set of worksheets for each emotion (boy and girl version) to explore the child’s emotion in more detail. It is simply drawing a picture and writing a sentence or two.

Let's buy a house! -  A property buying game that practises speaking skills

Let's buy a house! - A property buying game that practises speaking skills

This is for students who have an intermediate level of English. It is to do with buying houses and is useful for: Learning or revising rooms of the house Discussion classes - “where do you want to live?” Oral practise Role-playing Reviewing large numbers (it might be a good idea to go over this at the start) Critical thinking in a second language It is a very active lesson so is excellent for injecting some fun into your lessons. In order to lead into this activity, I suggest showing students a video of a property buying show to begin with. They seem to have them in every country and every student will get the hang of the game very quickly with this context. Tip: I suggest laminating these resources so you can use them time and time again. You can use as many or as little properties as you like. Instructions: THE OVERALL GOAL IS FOR THE ESTATE AGENTS TO MAKE AS MUCH MONEY AS POSSIBLE AND THE BUYERS TO SPEND AS LITTLE AS POSSIBLE AND FIND THE BEST HOUSE FOR THEIR CHARACTER. Half the class are estate agents, half the class are buyers. Split the houses (cheap/mid-range/expensive) amongst the Estate Agents. Tell them that they want to make as much money as possible, but they can sell the houses for as cheap as they want. Give each buyer a character and a budget (at random). Explain that the characters have to go to each estate agent and try and buy a house for as little money as possible. They have to negotiate (in English of course!) to meet each other halfway. The house has to be suitable for their family, as this will be checked later. It must have enough bedrooms, for example and the houses need to suit the working and school life of the families. When they have reached a deal, the estate agent must write a receipt that the buyer then signs. I have included a receipt that you can use if you so wish. The estate agent also notes down how much money they have made. At the end of the game, when every buyer has found a house, come together and find the winning estate agent: the one with the most money. Then, find the winning buyer: who has bought a house within their budget for their character and how much money did they save? Other students can vote on these. This game took my students around 45 minutes for a class of 15 - and we switched over in the middle (Estate Agents became buyers and vice versa).
