Plan your teacher's holiday to London! Great for distance learning.

Plan your teacher's holiday to London! Great for distance learning.

***Are your students budding travel agents? Can they plan a bespoke vacation for their teacher to the capital city of England, London? This lesson contains all they need to do just that! Using the extensive information and maps provided they have to make a ‘mood board’ on A1 paper of a proposed itinerary. (They can of course present in anyway you see fit) The information slides contain facts about attractions and places to visit as well as opening time, costs and how to get there. These slides on the PowerPoint should be printed off and given to the students - the photos can be cut out and used on their boards. This can be a group project but also works perfectly as a distance learning activity. Everything that they need is on the PowerPoint! I’ve used the conceit of planning their teachers trip because I feel it encourages the students to engage even more fully with the task. The PowerPoint is fully editable so you could put yourself into it rather than have your class plan a random person’s visit! If they want to, the students can also research other attractions you might like personally. Lesson contains a 23 slide PowerPoint with information on and photos of: The London Eye The Cutty Sark The Natural History Museum The National Gallery Hamleys Toy Store Thames River Cruise An open top bus tour. Shakespeares Globe Harrods Department Store A West End Theatre Production China Town Buckingham Palace and the Changing of the Guard Trafalgar Square The Tower Of London London Zoo As a London native myself I have been to every one of these attractions and can attest that any trip that includes even some of these places would be a trip to remember! I hope your students find it as interesting as my class did. When I go into London after teaching this unit I always take photos of myself at the places they have suggested so that they can see I have ‘taken their advice’ - they love the power!
