“Ever fancied overlanding across Asia, joining a polar expedition or climbing Mount Kilimanjaro? @Intrepid_Travel provides all the above experiences and many more, as well as offering niche travel tips for travelers who want to do more than lie on the beach, such as how to avoid altitude sickness in the High Andes or advice for home stays in Borneo. Even if you get no further than your own front room, reading this Twitter feed is enough to make you feel you're having a worldly travel adventure!”
Use this activity guide to direct students to the current Twitter feed of an excellent Twitter account about tourism.
Also available in this set!
The guide has them read through the feed and report information about geographic locations, tourist activities and attractions. Then there is a sharing activity, followed by a short essay reflective question.
They don't need Twitter accounts to do this activity. I also provide the Twitter research link directly on the student guide and list the account they are to search at the top as well.
Twitter keeps us up to date on the current status of things in the world and this lesson is meant to show students how to use Twitter in an academic way. It is also a chance for them to learn that situations in the world are ever changing.
Teaching time would take around 40 minutes with peer sharing.
You can use this as a sub plan, homework assignment or as classwork.
This is also available in a set, so you could have different groups of students visiting different social accounts.
