To introduce the topic of "Celebrating with my family", you are going to start listening about it.

In the listening 'Family Relationships', you can find a short podcast to listen and some questions to check your comprehension.  

How do we celebrate....?

Normally along the year we meet all of our family for special celebrations like Christmas, birthdays or some national holidays. It is the same around the world. Family members and friends usually meet other people to spent time together on special dates.

Your aim is to investigate about what these special celebrations around the world are.

Your final mission will be to create a digital or analogical poster about these different celebrations. The 'Rubric to assess a digital poster'  will help you know how to do a great job

Steps for our mission

Previous investigation

These resources will help you with your investigation. 

Creating the poster

From the previous information, you have to choose one of the festivals and we will create a poster with the following information:

  • Title.
  • Photos.
  • What do they celebrate?
  • When do they celebrate?
  • How do they celebrate?

We can create a digital poster or if you prefer a paper one in a big piece of cartuline. If you prefer to create a digital one, you can choose one of the following digital tools

Your final mission will be to create that final poster. It must be attractive and clear. Remember to include at least one ilustration about the celebration. Don't forget that the 'Rubric to assess a digital poster'  will help you know how to do a great job.

In case you had created your poster in a card, we'd only need to take some different pictures and then include them in your post.


We can include the poster into our blog. 

Don't forget to identify the post with the tag "The History of my family".

If you want, your teacher can disseminate your post using the Twitter account of the classroom. For that reason,  you have to write down the tweet for the teacher. Remember: 

  • You can use up to 280 characters.
  • Include the link to your post. 
  • Use the hashtag of the project: #EDIAfamily.

The 'Rubric to assess a tweet' will help you know how to do a great job. 

Before posting your text, ask your colleagues to check your work and make suggestions, corrections... You must do the same work with some of your mates' outcomes, too. Don't be afraid. Making mistakes is a good way to learn.

Learning Diary

It's time to continue with your Learning Diary. Remember it helps you reflect on what and how you are learning.

Let's go back to the document you opened in the previous mission as a Learning Diary. Below our previous writing we will create a new section entitled: 'Celebrating with my family'. You will reflect about what you have learnt answering the following questions:

  • What are the most difficult aspects?
  • What tool was the most difficult for you to work with?
  • What do you think is the most important aspect you have learned?
  • Are there any aspects you did not understand?

Remember it would be great if we shared these feelings and thoughts with our classmates. We will have 10 or 15 minutes to complete this part.
