CRAZY ANIMALS PROJECT AND GOODBYE TO OUR "AUXILIAR DE CONVERSA"

During this last term, 1st graders have been working in a little project in the English lessons. With the help of their families, each of them designed a crazy animal made up by mixing two different animals.
With the help of our "auxiliar de conversa", we worked in small groups to write a little description of our animal body parts and colours and then prepares a short presentation to introduce our animal to the rest of the class. We also recorded our presentations and put together a video using the Chroma key effect.











We haven't finished all the presentations yet, but on the interactive image below are some of the ones that are ready if you'd like to see.

We also want to use this post to thank Michelle for helping us with our English. THANK YOU and HAVE A SAFE TRIP BACK HOME! Below's a little video of some moments with her in 1st grade.

WHAT HAPPENED TO...?

During the month of  March we did different activities related to International Women's Day. One of them was giving traditional tales characters (Cinderella, Snowhite, ...) a new personality and making up a new story for them. 
WHAT IF SNOWHITE DIDN'T LIKE THE PRINCE? ... WHAT IF RAPUNZEL ESCAPED FROM THE TOWER ON HER OWN? ...
We used the following presentation as an introduction to the activity.


Below are some videos introducing our version of these women characters.
