We made a video to present our school.
We went on a field trip to show our hometown to our partners.
After the teachers introdouced themselves, it was time for students to do the same. They've introdouced themselves on Flipgrid. Here are Lana's and Sara's video.
CHALLENGE #1 - READING
The first challenge was to read at cultural places in our cities. We chose to read poems by two of the most famous Croatian poets in front of their statues in Zagreb, Here are the poems.
Our next task was to read about our partner countries and their flags and make an interactive game. We made a Kahoot. You can play it by clicking on the button below.
CHALLENGE #2 - LISTENING
To practice listening we used a fun app called Lyricstraining and the song selected by the partners was Count on me by Bruno Mars but we didn't stop there, We continued practising with our favourite songs.
The next listening task was to find some really hard to pronounce English words and make a shared Quizlet to practice listening.
We were challenged to a Spelling Bee by a Turkish art school and we enjoyed making new friends immensely while learning by challenging each others.
NEW YEAR'S WEBINAR
We exchanged New Year cards and wishes with our partner school from Turkey.
CHALLENGE #3 - SPEAKING
Our speaking challenge was a lot of fun, We made a podcast using the Anchor app with our partners from Turkey, Romania and Lithuania. Our podcast's name is Mr. Universe and it's about a funny Mr. Universe competition. We were responsible for the trailer and the first part. Lana recorded the trailer, Antonio was Mr. Universe and Tereza was the host of the show. Click on the button to hear the whole podcast.
Another speaking challenge was Singing in our partner's languages. This was the most challenging task for us.
The speaking challenge that we enjoyed the most was to speak English incessantly during class. It turned into quite a competition among the seventhgraders. And here are some of the results:
Then we joined our project's Edmodo class where we continued to write to our new friends.
The next writing challenge was the Storyjumper challenge. This was a teacher-student task and the student was Lana Šekerija. Click on the button and read our pages in this wonderful book!
One of our last tasks was to prepare a lapbook. We could use whatever topic we wanted but the real challenge was keeping up with the size requirements (10 x 10 cm). We chose to write about Australia.
