The Amazing Race

Year 3 recently completed their unit of inquiry looking into how communities use networks to meet their needs, using examples such as transport systems.

In French class, we learnt vocabulary related to different methods of transport, we learnt how to buy tickets when using public transport and how to ask for directions to where you’re going, and we also learnt to use maps that show bus routes or metro routes around Lausanne.

All this came in very useful when we embarked on the Amazing Race with all the Year 3 classes. It was a fantastic day of authentic inquiry and it was great to see students trying out their newly acquired language skills while out and about in Lausanne. When they came back to school, they wrote a little piece describing their journey in French and used Book Creator to publish it.
