English with Mr Felix ‘supersonic’ Baumgartner :-)

After seeing and cheering Felix Baumgartner‘s incredible supersonic jump on Sunday, and knowing that my young classes would be equally excited, I decided that I would incorporate his flight into a few of  this week’s lessons.🙂

I started with the first classes yesterday.  Some of the children had already seen the jump and so a foundation of excitement had already been laid.

The first video shown was the jump’s promo video.

After watching it, we froze on Felix’s face and worked on simple ‘face features’ with this worksheet. Then we moved on to drawing Felix’s face in an astronaut’s helmet template.

We finished up this part of the lesson by shooting a video of the kids responding to the question, ‘What’s your name?’. They held up the masks to their faces and answered, ‘My name is Felix.’

During my lessons with other children this week, I will also include some footage of the actual jump .

Along with this great Lego version.🙂
