Grafton Street

Let's go shopping!

Dublin is a wonderful city. One of the busiest streets in Dublin is Grafton Street. It goes from St. Stephen's green to Trinity College Dublin.

At the end of the session, you will have:

  • used a thinking routine about Grafton Street.
  • revised and practised quantifiers in English.

To start with, let’s begin with a thinking routine, about Grafton Street. Look at the picture of Grafton Street included in this section.

After viewing this picture of Grafton Street, answer the questions below:

  • What can you see?
  • How do you imagine the shops?
  • How many people can be walking along the street?
  • How many shops can the street contain?

Take a look at the Grafton Street Official website and watch the promotional video.

Then, answer the following questions:

  • What do you think about working in this street?
  • Have you ever visited a shopping street?
  • What does it make you wonder?

You have to answer these questions in your personal blog

You can have more information about this thinking routine in the Thinking routine.

Remember that Grafton Street must be part of the route at your Google Sites map.

Continue with your posts on Twitter (#taskcampaign and #projectdublin). Have you ever visited a shopping street? Which one/s? You can share the official link of the Parliament you have visited or the one you would like to, using the hashtags. You can also follow this street on Twitter.

Let's talk about quantity!

We use quantifiers when we want to give someone information about the number of something: How much..? or How many..? 

You can take a look at some links in order to learn how to express quantity in English: 

Try to do the activities in pairs. Your teacher can help you with all the exercises. 

Once you finish, you have to write a text  in your learning diary about how do you think that life from people who perform on the street, street musicians and dancers and other types of people who work on these popular streets can be. The title of this post has to be "People who work on the street".

In order to produce the best possible composition use the 'Rubric to assess informative or explanatory texts'.

Your Task: First version of your multimedia campaign

Task Step 3: First version of your multimedia campaign

In this step of your task, it is time to start preparing the multimedia campaign.

As you have to do this task individually, you can share your draft with another classmate and he or she can give you some suggerences in order to improve your final product. Then, you have to give some feedback to another classmate.

Your challenge: Dublin at the Google Site

Challenge Step 4: Organizing the Dublin entry at your Google Site 

At this step, you have to keep on organizing all the information you have gathered in order to complete the entry.

Each group ( 2 / 3 people) has to organize the information you have searched about Dublin at your Google Site. Creativity in the distibution of the contents is very important. 

At this step, you have to include at your Google Site the following information: 1  video about tourism in Dublin.

If you find more than one representative video, you can also include it in your Google Site.
