Super Bowl...

Introduction

Hello students! 

Your task today will be to learn more about Super Bowl.  I believe all of you know that Super Bowl is the annual championship game of the National Football League. Think about what makes it so popular and unique. 

As a prelude to this webquest please make sure you watch this year's half time show featuring The Weekend. 

 

How big of a show is it? 

Task

Your task will be to cover two aspects of Super Bowl: main information about Super Ball and its media coverage. 

Founded facts about those two issues you need to present in form of an interesting presentation for your classmates as well as prepare a short half time Super Bowl show. For the show, prepare a song and be ready to justify your choice. 

You can make use of any props, costumes, multimedia presentation, posters etc. Your imagination is your only limit. 

Good luck guys!

Process

Step 1: Divide yourselves into groups. There should be maximum of 5 people in the group. When you are ready with the division let me know who with whom is. Now you need to choose name for your group *it should somehow sound like a football team. BE CREATIVE!*

10) Find some information about the national anthem during Super Bowl. 

11) In which year did Super Bowl break the viewership record? How many people watched it?

FINAL QUESTION: In your opinion, why is Super Bowl so popular? How media encourage people to watch it? 

 

Step 3: Prepare a 7 facts about Super Bowl that surprised you? Explain why you picked them.

Step 4: Discuss how you are going to present it. 

Step 5: Start thinking about your half time show. Do a research on how they look, maybe watch an additional couple of videos.

Throughout this WebQuest students will research on the Super Bowl and connected issues. They have to cooperate and create presentation and half time show. Beside cultural focus there is more to this project as I hope it encourages students to search for information in foreign language so they can learn new vocabulary items and solidify their grammatical knowledge. It requires students to divide themselves into groups and share the responsibilities thus they learn how to efficiently conduct a group work.
