Guide to Canada or America
« on: October 13, 2009, 03:09:00 pm »
Okay so i did a fabulous activity last week so i shall share. 

I created a powerpoint of do's and don'ts for living in Canada (though many apply to america as well)
- i spiced it up with videos.  Specifically i found  a funny riding the subway video and funny bro handshake video
- i often had the kids tell me first what doing something in their country meant before I gave the canadian explanation.  EXAMPLE: what does two guys holding hands in korea mean (friendship) well in Canada it means dating (many of them yelled out gay) go there if you want lol
- i then talked a little about  why we should or should not do something and gave a little info about each slide
- the kids really enjoyed learning that high school students at public school can dress however , color their hair and have piercings and tattoos

at the end i asked them to help me create a guide to Korea, that went okay they weren't overly thrilled with participating but i got some good ones like teenagers don't drive
- korean's sometimes eat dog
- boys must go into the army

Did you have them work in groups or by themselves to make the guide?

Do you still have the links for the funny videos?

I'd like to use this lesson, and searching for good videos takes a lot of my lesson prep time!
