Students search for online information about the writer of the book, Mark Twain.
They watch trailers of the movie: The adventures of Tom Sawyer. They listen to and read aloud each chapter of the adapted version of the book. They translate new words/expressions using the DeepL translator, in pair work.
They watch a video of each chapter in their digital student’s book and answer the questions in their student’s book.
They make a brief summary of the story and play a kahoot game about the book (author, plot, main characters).
The teacher teach them how to use the digital tool - google earth- and they create the project: The Mississippi river route. The action of the book took place near the Mississippi river, in Hannibal, a small city in the state of Missouri (USA). The Mississippi river runs through or along 10 states, from Minnesota to Louisiana and the students create a project about the Mississippi river route, from Minnesota (headwaters) to the Gulf of Mexico (river's mouth).
While they are creating this project, they find out the ten USA states on google earth (Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois, Missouri, Kentucky, Tennessee, Arkansas, Mississippi, Louisiana) and the Gulf of Mexico.
Students search for information on wikipedia about the ten USA states and the Gulf of Mexico and add it to the project: name, capital, flag, population, currency, borders, monuments. Using google earth, they choose google images of these places and images of Tom’s adventures, etc.
Students share their project by email with their teacher and classmates and present it in class
