UK/England Culture
« on: September 27, 2011, 10:25:02 AM »
A 2 morning summer camp I did this vacation with mixed grades (generally low level) of middle school students.

Day 1 was the UK:
Lesson 1 - practice subject names and learn about life at a boarding school in the UK.
Lesson 2 - learn about the London Underground and practice giving directions (many thanks to the original poster for this activity!).
Lesson 3 - learn the story of Beowulf and practice describing people.

A 2 morning summer camp I did this vacation with mixed grades (generally low level) of middle school students.

Day 2 was the Commonwealth/Empire:
Lesson 1 - learn about the British Empire, how this made English a global language and how English absorbed words from other languages.
Lesson 2 - listen and watch two songs from the Jungle Book. Answer a worksheet about what they have seen and listen to complete a gap fill activity.
Lesson 3 - listen to music from different commonwealth countries and learn how to describe music. My students loved Bob Marley and hated the didgeridoo...
All the video clips and songs I used came from You Tube.

Hi all...Here is a ppt I did on England for after school.  You should be able to work it into any elementary level class.
Cheers

Thanks for that awesome presentation. I shall use it in my grades 4-6 afterschool class tomorrow. I'm a typography freak so I'll replace the neutral font with something English like Gill Sans or Clarendon (for my own gratification, not the kids'). After the presentation I'll prepare some English style tea and cakes. Thanks again.

Oh that's a great idea!  I might do that too...haven't presented this yet.  I'm doing a lot of different country units with my afterschool kids.  I will post more when they are done... :)

Nice powerpoint, just letting you know though, the slide labelled guard = bobby has a picture of a member of the Queen's Guard who are soldiers. These are not known as bobbies, a bobby refers to a member of the police, usually the typical foot patrol in the classic pointy hat.

Below attached is materials I used for my English Festival. It is Euro vision themed. I have scoreboards and a Euro vision PPT. The students watch the Euro vision videos and give each country between 1 to 5 points. Then we decided who won Euro vision.

Also there is a world cup game. Gave a country to each team, then they go against one another in a quiz and we see who won the world cup.

Lastly I did a summer fete for the younger grades.

Also a modern culture PPT which shows a modern view of England.

Finally a primary school PPT that shows differences between school in Korea and England.
