Thanks to my family

My family, my nearest people

At the end of this mission, you will be able to write and share a thank you message to my family, and write about its past events.  

You will work the writing, speaking and reading skills.

The reading comprehension 'Mary's family' will help you to remind the vocabulary related with the family and the relationship they have.

Thanks to my family

Sometimes it is said that the family is the most important thing you have. Most of the times, you don't tell them that though. As a final mission of this project, you are going to create a digital poster to show the history of your family and also to thank them.

The digital poster should include:

  • Photos of you and your family in different situations.
  • Explanation of these situations in a short text.
    • Its date.
    • What happened?
    • Why the situation was special for you.
  • And something to say thank you to the relatives for all the things they did it for you.
    • You can create a text for them to be read.
    • We can record a video to thank them.
Ideas and tools

  Some points you should consider to create a good poster are:

  • Clear and short message.
  • Good pictures.
  • Attractive design.
  • Important to say what to do to eat healthy and why it is important.

We can use different free websites to create our poster:

But just in case ICT access aren't available for you, you can also prepare a big poster in a piece of cartuline with drawings and big titles.

The final post with your digital poster

Your final product for this mission will be create the post to include your poster. These points can help you to remember all the information you should include into your post.

  • An explanation about the task.
  • Embed the digital poster
  • The link to your Learning Diary.
  • A short reflection about what you have learnt and how you have learnt that.

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

If we want, your teacher can disseminate your post using the classroom Twitter account. To do so, 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 us know how to do a great job.

    Before posting your text, ask your classmates 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!

    Organizing and sharing

    Now it's time to share and disseminate your fantastic work. Along the project, you have published different posts in your digital portfolio.

    As a summary, you will create a complete post (digital portfolio) in your blog with a reflection about what you have learned along this project. As in other missions, you must disseminate this product. You are suggested to make a public presentation of your videos and of course, a special work with social networks using the classroom/school's accounts.

    Steps for this mission

    Creating the post

    The following items will guide you to create the post (Don't forget to identify your post with the tag "Project The History of my Family"):

    • Main vocabulary of the project.
    • Grammar reference.
    • All the activities related with this topic.
    • Final outcome of the project: The family timeline/ tree.
    • A good idea would be to include the links to all the posts you have created along the whole project.
    • You can also include the link to your Learning Diary.
    Public presentation

    You are invited to make a public presentation of our posters. Don't you think it could be a great activity to organize an event at our school/classroom? Teachers, students, parents and maybe other people could know what you have done and value all your effort.

    Each group must introduce the posters. The resource 'Useful sentences for your videos and presentations' will help you with general sentences to prepare your speech.

    The 'Rubric to assess an oral presentation' will help you know how to do a great job.


    Now it is time to disseminate your final post through the social networks. Remember that you have a Twitter account for the class run by the teacher. So it is time for you to create a tweet to disseminate your post. It will be published using the class account. Remember:

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

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

    Learning Diary: final evaluation

    You have finished the project, but there is a very important aspect to focus on now: you will assess all you have done. It is very easy; you are going to think on everything you have learned and how you have learned it. So you should think on all the missions you have completed.

    Below your previous writing, you will create a new section entitled: "Thanks to my family"

    Assessment is very important because it will help you and the teacher solve and change all the aspects that might have not worked properly and continue using all the ones which have helped you learn more and better. But it is especially meaningful for you to identify how you learn better.

    To carry out this assessment, you will complete the following document:

    You can work on this individually and then share it with your mate (the one you have been working with). Finally, you will share with the whole group.

    What's more, if the final assessment is positive, your teacher will give you a badge recognizing this effort that you can include in your Learning Diary. By doing so, you will be awarded an accomplishment badge by your teacher who will be able to create them using this website.

    You are invited to talk to your parents about all this. You can publish a summary of your learning process in the final post with all your outcomes.
