Engelska åk 8 Let´s talk Australia

Skapad 2016-02-07 15:31 i Gunnesboskolan Lunds för- och grundskolor
Australia Australia is the dream continent for many youngsters. “Down Under” some things are quite different from Europe, and one is the weather at Christmas. The backpacker Mike sends you emails and describes his adventures while travelling round in Australia… In “Dreamtime”, the theme is Australian history and also the traditions and culture of the Aborigines. Rabbit Proof Fence is a true story about three very brave young girls, who escaped from a school a long way from their home and parents. They walked all by themselves through the outback and made it all the way home after a long time.

8ABC: Australia – A seven-day-trip weeks 3-12

You are supposed to make an imaginary 7-day trip through a part of Australia which you choose yourself.

To help you on your way, watch videos from different parts of Australia. The first video you can see on your blog. You can read texts in English about Australia as well.

Write to your parents or friends back home in Sweden. Adventures of a backpacker p. 52 Happy 8 will give you some inspiration on how to write.

You can write about people you meet, friends you make, what you do, food you eat, nature, animals, sites of interest and other things.

You must write between 50 and 100 words from each day and you will organize it like this:

Day 1, day 2, day 3, day 4, day 5, day 6, day 7.

You will also write down a list of 25 new words that you have learned from the videos and translate them. Hand in your wordlist on Monday week 10. There will be a small test on your individual word list in week 10, on  Friday. 

Your travel diary should be finished and published on your blogs each week.

8ABC Checklist to use before handing in your Australian Travel Diary

Here you will find a checklist that you should use while looking through your text so that you can correct it before handing it in to your teacher.

CHECKLIST FOR ENGLISH TEXTS:

 

PART 1

 

  • Check that you have divided your text into paragraphs (stycken).

 

  • Check that you have a capital letter (stor bokstav) in the beginning of each sentence and for the following type of words (one example for each type): I (jag), countries (Sweden), cities (Lund), parts of the world (Africa), days of the week (Monday), Mr. (herr), Mrs. (fru), Ms (fröken).

 

  • Check that you end each sentence with a period (punkt), a question mark (frågetecken) or an exclamation mark (utropstecken).

 

  • Verbs in the present tense: He, she, it should have an -s on the verb in the present tense (nutid), but not the other pronouns. For example:  I play / you play / he, she, it plays / we play / you play / they play.

 

  • Verbs in the past tense (preteritum/imperfekt): Regular verbs end on - ed in the past tense, for example I played football. Jag spelade fotboll. Check if any of the verbs you have used are irregular (oregelbundna). You can do this by googling the verb + conjugation (böjning), for example “take conjugation”. The past tense is the second verb form when you look up a verb, for example take/took/taken, see/saw/seen. Remember that the verb “be” has the following forms in the past tense:   I was / you were /he, she, it was / we were / you were / they were.

 

  • Verbs in the past perfect (perfekt): have/has + the past participle. Check if any of the verbs you have used are irregular (oregelbundna). You can do this by googling the verb + conjugation (böjning), for example “take conjugation”. The past perfect is the third form when you look up a verb, for example take/took/taken, see/saw/seen. Don’t forget that you use has for he, she, it and have for the other pronouns.
