NATURAL DISASTERS

Here you can read the e-book about Natural Disasters produced by the students of class III D of IC Predazzo, Tesero, Panchià, Ziano (Italy) during their third year of CLIL in Geography. It is a description of some natural disasters that occur in the world under specific weather conditions. You can read how these disasters affect people and what are the things that people can do to avoid or reduce damages. The project is also a nice example of CLIL task for 13/14 year-old students and anyone can freely use it as a starting point for a CLIL project at school.

 

THE UNITED NATIONS AND ITS AIMS

In this e-book you can find useful information about the United Nations and how this international organization works. It is a third year CLIL project for lower secondary students which can be taken as an example of CLIL task. The e-book has been realized by the students of class IIIB of IC Predazzo, Tesero; Panchià; Ziano (Italy) during their CLIL lessons in Geography. It is important for young people to have a clear idea of what the UN does for maintaining peace and security in our world. The problems within countries are always so complex that sometimes the existance of an international body like the United Nations and its aims can guarantee stability and security for all the people.

 

TOURIST GUIDES TALKING ABOUT THE LOCAL AREA

This project was carried out by second-year Italian students (aged 11-12) of Tesero lower secondary school, Trentino, Italy.

It was conceived in order to offer the CORE delegates – on occasion of their Italian meeting, October 9th – 11th, 2013 – an idea of the Dolomitic landscape with particular attention to its naturalistic, faunistic and geological aspects. This project has been called CLIL in action because the students actually performed their knowledge pretending to be guides of the delegate groups. The language is English and the subject is Science.
