Would you rather visit the tropical rainforest or the African savanna? (TC4PI)

The main goal of this project is to get to know the main biomes worldwide, their main characteristics and the relationship with climates and the importance of preserving biodiversity.

In this new cross-disciplinary  project (involving Geography, English and Science departments), students had to search information, think critically, work collaboratively, show rigorous learning, connect it to the world outside and communicate their findings effectively.

logo_tc4piIt is part of the work we are doing for the TC4PI (Teacher competences for plurilingual integration) project we are taken part in. This second term it was focused on learner autonomy in cross-disciplinary projects.

The final task was to  create an interactive image about terrestrial biomes and here you have some examples of our students’ work.

It’s said that an image is worth more than a million words, but in my opinion, these interactive images are also worth a lot!

Alcohol. Drugs (Part 2)

This lesson was not aimed to be the typical ‘ alcohol talk’ teenagers expect to receive from parents and teachers. Instead, I just wanted to show you some biology facts related to comsumption of alcohol and encourage you to think for yourselves and make informed choices …

Thanks to Cristina, Sara and Elisa from 4º B for making this video to recall what we talked about in class.

We have realised how important it is to take care of our world. To do this, we decided to make a few videos to pass some of the knowledge we have to you. Remember that there is only one fit to live in planet, so if we destroy it, we will go down with it!

Drugs (Part I)

Drugs are substances that change how the body works. Some of them are useful to us like antibiotics and analgesics. Others, however, are abused and can cause severe harm to our body.

In this first post, 4º ESO students show us how antibiotics work and the importance of using them  properly.
