Summer is time to travel, it means that it’s time to pack your backpacks and suitcases. You need to choose what to take with you, because the space in your luggage is limited. But making a choice is not an easy matter and the climate is in different parts of the world. A great summer activity will diversify your classes. Just print and do!
What to do:
- let the students choose a backpack. There is a collection of them for every taste and color;
- now a little bit of crafting - make slots for pockets and stick on a thick sheet of paper. Your backpack is ready!
- brush up or study the names of the countries, discuss where the students have been to or where they would like to go and why, what famous sights they have visited/would like to visit, etc;
- then there is a choice, where to go? Let the children choose the country themselves or you can arrange a lottery, the sale of burning tours, just poke your finger on the map of the world blindly or write the names of countries on the slips of paper, mix them, put in a hat and choose. By the way, you can go on a trip separately, in pairs or in tourist groups;
- it's time to pack a suitcase! In open pockets of backpacks and suitcases children draw/write (or both) a list of things they need for their specific trips. (since the suitcase isn’t rubber, you can limit their imagination to a certain number of things, but it is not necessary). Depending on the level of children: they can just call what they will take with them, tell and argue why exactly this or that thing is preferable, ask each other different questions and discuss. Discuss in pairs or in groups, if they all go together, and give a final feedback.
You can pack your backpacks:
- to travel abroad;
- to go camping with your family;
- to go to a summer camp or health resort;
- to visit your grandma and stay in the village for a month or so;
- on a desert island, imagining that the ship is getting shipwrecked and they have only a few minutes to find and take with them exactly those items that will help to hold out until the arrival of rescuers.
