In Europa in inglese

Un’esercitazione su argomenti di geografia dell’Europa da svolgere in inglese

ISTITUTO COMPRENSIVO STATALE

Michelangelo Buonarroti

via Tembien 1 - 90135 Palermo


In europa in inglese

Le attività proposte sono semplici e possono/devono essere svolte senza l’ausilio di traduzioni o dizionari in quanto l’uso delle immagini rende intuitivamente accessibili sia i concetti sia le parole adoperate.

Si tratta per lo più di:

- abbinare immagini e definizioni

- abbinare immagini a titoli o nomi

- attuare scelte

- escludere elementi “intrusi”

- ordinare fasi di un processo

- ordinare frasi

- interpretare e/o completare carte tematiche

operare inferenze e deduzioni

interpretare grafici

Tutte queste operazioni possono essere svolte nelle lavagne interattive con semplici gesti di trascinamento, anche con file in formato Power point.


In europa in inglese

Scopo di questa esercitazione è di incrementare l’uso di una lingua straniera come mezzo reale di comunicazione (comprensione) e, al tempo stesso, proporre un approccio alla geografia operativo e centrato su inferenze e deduzioni.

Gli esercizi sono connessi a strutture linguistiche che possono facilmente essere comprese anche se non le si è affrontate specificamente nello studio di L2; si ritiene infatti che affrontarle inconsapevolmente, mentre l’attenzione è rivolta ai contenuti, ne agevoli l’apprendimento.

Questa esercitazione è solo una parte di un percorso più completo, basato sulla metodologia CLIL, articolato in sei brevi moduli, che nelle nostra scuola ha coinvolto quattro classi di seconda media guidate da docenti di inglese e di geografia.

Plants consist in many softwood trees such as fir, . . . . . . . , spruce, and hemlock.

Most animals are herbivores, however some carnivores and omnivores are thrown in.  Animals in Coniferous Forests include the. . . . . . . , moose, snowshoe hare, great horned owl, and the crossbill.

The largest Coniferous forest exists in a ring in Alaska, Canada, northern Asia and. . . . . . . . . . . . Europe, in a ring in the . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Hemisphere.

This forest is called the "Taiga".

E- The oil is collected in a spinning device that allows the oils to collect, while keeping out all other foreign substances

F- Olives grow on olive trees, where they must be harvested to begin the oil-production process.

B- After the olives are placed in a cleaning machine

C- The olive paste is swiftly mixed, which results in the formation of drops of oil.

G- Once all the oil has been separated, it can be bottled and sold as virgin olive oil.

D- Once clean, the olives travel to an olive mill, where they are crushed and smashed down, creating a paste-like substance.

H- Once the olives are obtained, they are immediately cleaned and sorted

What type of climate do olive trees need to grow??

Tick the right choice

A- Nordic climate – very cold climate throughout the year

Winemaking

  • After crushing and destemming, the juice from the grapes is put into the fermentation vats, where alcoholic fermentation takes place.

  • Grapes are harvested during the cool morning hours and moved to the winery in open bins.

  • Grapes are transferred to a stemmer/crusher where the stems are removed and the grapes are crushed and pressed.

The sheep is an animal which has a thick coat of fleece on its body.

The sheep should not be confused with the goat. They are different in many ways. Sheep do not have a beard like the goat.

The fine-wooled sheep will produce fine wool. The fine wool are made into garments.

Cows produce: milk, cheese, other dairy products, and meat such as beef and veal and leather hide. In older times they were work animals.

Cows eat corn, hay, barley, beet pulp, grass and wheat.

Milk can be made into other dairy products : butter, cheese, yogurt

Chickens eat worms, insects, seeds, grains, snails, slugs, fruits, vegetables and many other foods.

Chickens give us eggs.

Cows and Goats provide us with nutritious milk.
