this project was developed as a part of a Blogquest course in Cibernàrium, Barcelona, lead by Ingrid Noguera and Anna Rodera.
In this blogquest the students worked on the present simple by asking and writing about the activities done by their classmates on Saturdays.
CONTENT AREA AND GRADE LEVEL:
this activity is geared towards fifth and sixth grade students focusing on English Language. We think it is a good project to teach students how to work with TIC.

- distinguish the use of the present simple with the first and the third singular person
- learn daily routine vocabulary
- make students realize the importance of collaborative housework and sport activities
- Practice through imitation good pronunciation

A digital board is also needed to show the process to the students and watch the final projects.
One teacher is sufficient to conduct this lesson.
When the project is complete the students have to be able to talk about their own and thir classmate's activities.
