Along the school year, secondary students are learning a lot of things about the United States. All the courses are divided in two groups, and each group has the name of a state in the USA. So, 4 ESO are Wyoming and Montana, 3A are Florida and Alabama, 3B are Wisconsin and Illinois, 2A are California and Nevada, 2B Kentucky and Indiana.
First, they investigated and looked for information of each state of their name, they worked in groups making posters with all the aspects related to the state, such as culture, sports, population, situation, important people, food, traditions…
Secondly, these posters were later presented to
the rest of the class, so that they all learnt and shared their knowledge.

Then, all the posters with the information were displayed along the galleries and corridors for everybody to learn and admire.
And finally, all the groups prepared a few
questions about the state they worked on and we made a multiple choice quiz for us to play and prove our knowledge. Do you want to have a try?
All this work has been done during the classes they have once a week with Penelope, our American teacher assistant and with the help of Ioar, our trainee teacher.
