Students with no access to computers or the mentioned programs can do their assignments by recording a video of themselves while talking about their favorite trip, the places they visited and the activities they did. They will have to show pictures or drawings of those places and activities. Students will also have to talk for 2 or 3 minutes about the history or important facts of the city or place they visited, deliver the scrip, and the research they did on a piece of paper.
If you are working with younger students you could ask parents to record them talking about their favorite part or place of the house and what fun activities they do in that room or location then present those videos to the class and have the kids talking about they their partners' favorite places and what activities they love doing at home.
