We are going to visit Dublin in two weeks. You already know that you are going to attend a course at the Emerald Culture Institute in the morning but we have plenty of time to visit the Irish capital city!!!
Task: In order to plan our trip to Dublin the teacher has created a webquest for you. You’ll have to choose the places we are going to visit, the restaurants and the pubs we are going to eat in, where to go shopping, and the events that you would like to attend. You can also use videos, music or photos to enrich your presentation.
As it is a group activity you have to make 5 groups of 5 students. Are you ready to start?
Group 1 (Ireland and its symbols) Analyze 3 symbols of the Irish culture and introduce them to your classmates.
Group 2 (Restaurants and pubs) Choose 3 places where to enjoy our evenings in Dublin and take notes about the prices and what you would like to eat and drink.
Group 3 (Places of interest)
Choose 3 places to visit in Dublin and take notes about the attractions you choose and motivate your decisions.
Group 4 (Shopping)
Choose 3 shops where you would like to go shopping. Motivate your choices and remember that you can only spend 70 €.
Group 5 (Events) What’s going on in Dublin? Choose a sport and a cultural event you would like to assist and describe them to the class. Remember that you have a budget of 100€.
At the end of the webquest the students will be able to:
-plan a trip on their own;
-cooperate and collaborate;
-look for and select specific information on a website;
-motivate their choices;
-use the language to solve a problem;
-organize a presentation;
