With the Etwinning project, we would like to teach our Croatian and Latvian colleages a ton about our local traditions. The next festival / tradition we are going to celebrate in Fraga is Carnestoltes – Mascres. Do you like it?

So, let’s get them into the festive spirit of Carnestoltes with this project by preparing in groups of 5 or 6 students a 2 page Canva or a Prezi presentation to show them how we celebrate it in our town. Explain it as if to someone who knows nothing about it.

In Carnestoltes, we have got old traditions lying around such as a big parade, mascres, la rifa del tocino, ninots, etc. We are sure they will be really interested in learning about them.

In your presentation, you’ll have to explain:
- What is Carnestoltes?
- When and where is it celebrated?
- Traditions or anything else you know about it (include pictures)
- Traditional food (include pictures)

You can also include a set of pictures of:
- The most creative costume you have seen
- The most popular costume
- Your own costume(s): Explain your props and accesories
- The winner of the Carnestoltes (Rei Carnestoltes 2020)

Deadline: 2nd March

The lazy days of summer are over...  😕 and the new high school year is here! I hope you have refreshed and you are ready to start!
As your teacher has already explained you, this year we are going to start an Etwinning Project with two countries: Croatia and Latvia.
What do you know about these two countries?

You don't know much about them, do you? Maybe the students from Croatia and Latvia don't know much about Spain either. So, let's help them learn about our country by creating a webquest.
Let's start!


1)  Give an interesting title

2) Make the Introduction page: Introduce the students from Croatia and Latvia to the assignment. The introduction is a basic description of what they are supposed to learn. Include at least one picture to make it more appealing.

3) The task and process: What are the students going to do? Think of 15 questions about basic information they should know about Spain, for example: about the food, festivals, the flag, the most famous landmarks etc. You also have to look for webpages where your foreign classmates can find this information.

4) A conclusion: Remind them about what they've learned, and  encourage them to learn more. 

 5) Finally, your WebQuest is finished -- and you're pretty proud of it! Why not share it?

In this project, you’ll have to make a five-minute video about an English speaking country about one of the following continents: America, Asia, Africa or Europe to teach the students from 6th course of Primary school from San José de Calasanz sociocultural information. The group which works with Europe cannot choose UK or Ireland.

After giving this information, you must think and make up / invent a game for the gymkhana related to the information you will teach to them.


The deadline for the video is on 6th June 2019.

These are the different parts you should follow:


In small groups, brainstorm different aspects of your continent customs / traditions / games or other additional information that you have learned while you were doing the English project: “Travelling to the English Speaking Countries”. The grid you completed in class from your classmates’ oral presentations could help you.

-       Choose the topics which interested you the most (from the grid you completed in class).

-       Find more info on the web

-       Think about what you want to include in your video presentation.

Once you have the information about your country, create a game (your choice). Try to be creative!! Bear in mind in your game, students should be moving. It can be:

-       “Who wants to be millionaire?” (a multiple choice online game) OR

-       A board game: It should be neat,colorful and interesting

-       Other games in which the students will be moving etc.

You should explain to the Primary school students how to play the game, so you should write directions you want to give them. Then, you must memorize them for the day of the gymkhana.
Make sure the content and the difficulty of the game is appropriate for them.
 Decide and create what you want to give them as a prize when they get a right answer.
Think which materials you would need and ask them to your teachers. If you need to laminate or write down something on a poster board / cardboard, please ask your English teachers to check your grammar and spelling mistakes.
-       IMPORTANT: Show and explain the game to your English teacher.

-       In groups, decide how you are going to present the information in the video.
-       Divide your presentation in different parts: Remember that each member of the group should speak the same amount of time.
-       A tip: Use age-appropriate props:Decide on which props you would use in the recordinge.g. flags, pictures, food items, food photos etc. to grab the Primary school students’ attention.
-       Before recording, rehearse and time yourselves.

-       The oral presentation should last about five minutes.
-       Memorize your part. You mustn’t read it.
-       A tip to do it properly is to listen to your classmates’ part and give each other feedback, note any pronunciation difficulties, vocabulary, grammar.
-       Remember, your presentation should be natural while you are speaking in front of the camera.
-       Look at the schedule; you’ll have a specific classroom to record your video.
-       Try to be comfortable in front of the camera.
-       Show some passion and enthusiasm when talking!
-       Help each other during the recording.
-       Edit the video to make it the most appealing for your primary students as possible. Be creative.
-       You can use tools such as iMovie or Windows Movie Maker to add music, special effects, captions, titles etc. They are both free and easy to use.
-       IMPORTANT: Show the video to your English teacher just in case you have to change something. Also, send it to her email address.
Part 7: ArcGIS MAP:
After you finish creating and designing your game, you must:
-       Put a tack on the country you have been working in the ArcGIS map.
-       Write down a note in the ArcGIS map with the following information:
1)    Name of the game
2)    Number of players
3)    Materials needed in the game
4)    The instructions of the game – how the game is played.
5)    Take a picture of your game and upload it in the ArcGIS map.
-          Divide the game in different parts and decide: who is going to explain the game in the gymkhana, who is going to organize the children, who is going to tell them if their answer is correct, etc.
-          Remember that each member of the group should speak the same amount of time.
-          Wear or dress up with something related to your country.
-       Use your creativity to decorate the stall where your video is going to be shown. The decoration should be about the country or continent you are working in.
-       A tip: You can bring the props you have used to record the video to the closing event (Friday, 7th of June), the day when the students from San Jose de Calasanz are going to come.
The equipment you will need is:
-       video equipment
-       Material to design your game: scissors, cardboards, coloredpaper,colored pencils, dices, markers etc.
