The Snail and the Whale – Jezikajte 2012 – Final Day

The students were so tired today, they had obviously used their last night together to good effect.  So, we started the day with bingo, and word games. Then we spent a little time finishing up the fire brigade unit by thinking about what characteristics a fire fighter should probably have. We came up with courage, strength, and helpfulness, along with a few others.

The final mini-unit was entitled ‘save the whale’. The class suggested notions of why whales should be protected and then wrote them down in a short text.  I thought that this would be a fitting final assignment that highlighted the plight of some of these creatures. The students produced some insightful reasons as to why we should protect whales, including the memorable question: why must they die?

We closed the lesson by going outside to sit on the grass and talk. It seemed a very fitting way for an English course to end.🙂
