Reaching for the Stars

Last week in English, our 5ème students completed a lesson on The Solar System.

The lesson is aimed at learners of English, the focus of the lesson is on oral communication while the content of the class links the student’s knowledge and interest in science. The class also acts as an introduction to the relationship between life sciences and learning English.

The lessons included a series of short video and PowerPoint presentation, followed by an activity where students had to complete a worksheet on colour, orbit and temperature of the planets. Many interesting questions were raised which gave all some food for thought.

For those who wish to further explore here is a website that helps us to explore our own planet.
