Hello! This is Erika from English Flower Garden. Last term, my PBL class students worked on creating presentations. The children wrote their presentations and selected an art/technology medium to deliver their messages. Some kids created short videos, posters, and interactive activities involving the participants. The themes were fascinating, covering a wide range of topics such as "Deforestation," "All about Penguins," "Global Warming," "Importance of Children's Physical Health," "Lizards," and "Alien Animal Problems in Ogasawara Island." I was impressed! Throughout the five years of learning together, we explored many subjects, so the students did not need much assistance selecting a topic and expressing their opinions.
Writing a presentation is not easy. But the children brainstormed what they already knew about their chosen topics and identified areas they wanted to study deeper. I also encouraged them to include personal experiences. We also discussed the most suitable art/technology format that matches their topic to deliver their messages. The students created fantastic presentations and delivered them confidently on the day.
Great job, everyone!
