We just began a unit on nutrition. Many years ago, I had the privilege to have a student whose mom worked for the BC Dairy Foundation. She delivered lessons to my class and I learned a great deal working with her.
To kick off this unit, I asked the students a few important questions. These are the skills that the students worked on today while working with a few classmates:
-collaborating with a group
-taking notes (each student was in charge of one question)
-reporting to a larger group
-speaking French with each other
