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.
It 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!
