When I was on Holiday :)

Beach custom comment codes for MySpace, Hi5, Friendster and more - ImageChef.com

Level: Any

Materials: power point, images of holiday places

Target language: Past tenses

Ask students to create a 2-slide powerpoint. On one slide they will upload a photo they have taken from a holiday. On the second slide, they will write a short text describing the picture. They may answer the following questions to write their texts.

▪ where was the photo taken?

▪ Who were you with?

▪ When were you there?

▪ How long did you stay there?

▪ What kind of a place was it?

▪ What were the typical things there (food, music, etc)

▪ Did you enjoy being there?

Then you can combine all the slides and prepare an ‘Our Holiday’ presentation.

Web 2.0 alternatives

  • Upload the pictures on voice thread and ask students to record their voice and describe their photos. Then ask the other students to comment on each photo.
  • Tell your students to create posters using tabblo
  • Create a glogster and upload all the photos students used, record their voices talking about their holidays or if they are ok with video recording, record them while talking about their holidays.
