Dodger Stadium

I would like to visit a baseball stadium

The 56,000-seat Dodger Stadium was built in 1962 in Los Angeles. Apart from enjoying a thrilling baseball match, visitors can also take a 90-minute tour of the stadium and the baseball park.

At the end of the session, you will have:

  • read and answered some questions about the Dodger Stadium using its official website.

  • learnt the use of the 'be going to' in English.

  • designed the final version of your mental map with the use of the TAWE app.

Have you ever played baseball? Do you know how to play it? Have you ever watched this sport on television? Did you know that baseball is not an Olympic sport yet? 

Visit the Dodger Stadium official website and try to find the answer to these questions:

  • How much do ten adults have to pay if they want to do the tour? (To find out, visit the "Stadium Tours" section).
  • What school materials and for which grades do Dodgers collaborate with schools? (To find out, visit the "Mathletics" section).
  • What other events could the Dodger Stadium host? (To find out, visit the "Stadium Rentals" section).
  • What do people who want to sing the National Anthem have to do? (To find out, visit "A to Z Guide" section).

You have to answer these questions in your learning diary.

Remember that The Dodger Stadium must be a part of the route at your Google Sites map

Continue with your posts on Twitter (#taskwayoflife and #projectlosangeles). Choose one of the moments on  Dodger Stadium History section and send a tweet with the link of the fact that you like the most. You can also tweet the answer to the previous questions adding the link of your post from your learning diary.

You can also watch the Virtual Tour of the Dodger Stadium Memorial to have an idea of its history and send the Dodgers a tweet telling them you have visited their stadium virtually.

I am going to finish my project!

We use the ' be going to´to express something related to the immediate future or an action in the near future that has already been planned or prepared. 

Read how to use the ´be going to´ future.

Let's practise how to use the `be going to´ structure. Then, you can do these tests: level 1, level 2 and level 3.

You can compose a digital poster to explain how to use the ´be going to´ structure in English and make up some examples of its use.

In order to compose a good digital poster, you have to take into account this rubric: 'Rubric to assess a digital poster'.

Task Step 5: Designing and publishing your production

After having visited the Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, it is now time to design the final version of your mental map with the TAWE app using the visual thinking technique about an aspect of the American way of life you have been working on.
