As consumers we buy hundreds of  products each year . We must know our rights when we buy products and services, and what to do if there’s a problem.

  • Work in a group of  4
  • Choose 1 product that you have / use at home or school.   Note ( products should belong to one category only)
  • Gather information about the specification of the products.
  • Make a lapbook :
  •      1- use pictures or drawings of the products.

          2- Write short notes about the specification of the products,brands, where to buy them , Instructions on how to use them, warranty, etc

   3- Prepare possible complaints or problems.

Vision Board Day

17 Nov

A leader has the vision and conviction that a dream can be achieved. He inspires the power and energy to get it done. This is the students’ third project. I evaluated both social and speaking skills. It was a great opportunity to know more about my students and their personality.

Next Project: A Vision Board

27 Oct

For unit 3 I want my students to make vision boards. This is the task:

A Vision board is created by a student to illustrate what she wants in the future. A vision board is a personal collection of an individual’s desires and no restrictions are placed on the images or words displayed on the board.

You will need to look through magazines and online to find pictures and words that represent your goals. You may draw pictures or write words to represent your goals.

It is recommended that you paste your name in the center of your board.

Paste the pictures and words on the vision board. Pictures may overlap, words can be pasted on top of images or pictures can be in a distinct order. An organized collage is the goal.

At the back of the board, you will need to describe the items on your board, explaining their meaning to you.
