Cross Curricular project - Countries of the World
Well done to those of you who have made a start on your projects. We have had a good variety of countries chosen and some interesting facts included - we're learning new things too! Remember your project must include a mixture of writing and pictures. It can be hand written or word processed. The most interesting projects will include facts as well as opinions – what do you think? How could it be done differently? Why do you think they did that?
Week 2: 20th April 2020
Chapter 1 News
Task: Investigate 3 or 4 major events from the time period in more detail and create a chapter outlining both happy/exciting events as well as disasters.
Please include pictures or illustrations in your first chapter.
There must be paragraphs to separate the events and include a variety of sentence starters (fronted adverbials, adverbs, time connectives). In your paragraph discuss what happened; how it impacted the country; is the event celebrated or remembered in anyway?
Week 1: 30th March 2020
Task 1: Decide on a country for your project. Choose a country that you have heard of or even been on holiday to. Think carefully about your chosen country as you need to create a whole project on it.
Task 2: Write an introduction for your project – include the following:
Why you have chosen the country
Location – which continent is it in?
Population – how many people live there today? 10 years ago? 100 years ago?
Weather – does the country have 4 seasons like England or only 2?
A timeline of the major events in your chosen country
Your introduction should be written in sentences not bullet points, think about the use of vocabulary to engage the reader.
