This is a short project made with my pupils of Y4 about New Zealand (10 years old - primary esl). The final outcome consisted of a booklet with all the information collected about this country, a display in the school corridor and a performance of a Maori song.
Children at work! Mind mapping, searching in the atlas, group working, questioning, downloading photos, comparing information in different languages, writing, contrasting, collaborating, describing, publishing, displaying... different mind and social processes and different challanges in only one task!
We also performed a children song about a Taniwha: In Māori mythology, taniwha (Māori pronunciation: [ˈtanifa]) are beings that live in deep pools in rivers, dark caves, or in the sea, especially in places with dangerous currents or deceptive breakers.
First we practiced it with a PowerPoint and then we sung it as an action song. Better to have a look!
