Teach your mini-project. Reflect on how it went. Be prepared to give feedback.

Group and date taught

5th grade
·         14th and 15th February (Science)
·         16th February (Arts)
What did you do?

The textbook I use in class is Natural Sciences 5 Primary. Oxford Educación.
My project consists of including these activities learnt in the CLIL course in the lessons.
Lesson 1:  How are sources of energy classified?
                  Silence discussion: What is energy?
                  Wall-crawl: Renewable energies
Lesson 2: How are sources of energy classified?
                 Running dictation: Non-renewable energy sources
Lesson 3: Think-pair-share: advantages of renewable energies
                  Design a poster of renewable energies
What went well

Running dictation: I chose a short passage from the science book. I put the copies up around the walls of the classroom. I put the students in pairs. The aim is for one of the students in each pair to walk (or run!) to read the passage on the wall. They remember some of the passage and walk (or run!) back to their partner. It was a great way to practice spelling and pronunciation, also a great memory training!
Reflection for future practice
What needed improvement/changes and why

They need more practice on silence discussions. It was their first time and they didn´t really know what to write down to answer the question: What is energy?
What would you change considering level, age or other factors

I would change the question for the silence discussion: Where do we get energy from?

1.      How do we get hydroelectric energy?

2.      What holds water in a reservoir?

3.      Where do we get wind energy from?

4.      What transforms solar energy into electrical energy?

5.      Give an example of a:
        Solid biofuel:
        Liquid biofuel:
        Gas biofuel:
6.      Where are biofuels burned to produce heat in homes?

Running dictation: Non-renewable energies
