On Wednesday 7th February we had the first day of new period, and since last school year we have celebrated the day by having a bit special program with no regular lessons. This time we invited local Red Cross' voluntary group Salamatiimi to participate the day with us, because we wanted to provide our students a natural way to use English and to work with people from different culture. You can read more about Salamatiimi and their activity here.
After we divided us to four groups we started the program with basketball. Then the program continued with various workstations. Below you can see photos of all four stations.
At the first workstation the groups planned and filmed a short video. The results can be seen at the end of this page.
At the next station the groups explained and/or drew various words to each others and competed against other groups.
Third station was about baking cookies.
Last station was called "Flowers with similarities and differences". The group made a colorful flower witch the filled with things that are common to all the group members and things that make everyone unique compared to others in group. The results can be seen at top of this page.
