All the teachers were gone,

but we NEVER GAVE UP. At least some of us didn’t! 🙂

1. What happened in the classroom when you found out that the teachers were gone?

2. How did your group react and why? Write your answers in Padlet. Click on the link and then in the Padlet just double click anywhere to start writing.
3. Read the text GONE again. Read the text aloud and together in your groups.
4. Compare the reactions of your group to the students in the text. Can you find any similarities?
5. Which are the main characters and how are they described in the text? Underline the information that you find in the text. Be prepared to tell another group what you have found.
6. The groups tell each other what they have written and talked about. Two groups get together and tell each other.

Our superpowers

We have created characters and every character needed a superpower.

When the teachers left us, our task was to tell the group members about our characters.

We, how managed to stay calm, did it like this. Below you can watch a few examples:

 

 

The teachers are back…

Yesterday was a bit odd, right?

We read the first the chapter of the book Gone written by Michael Grant. The book is a Dystopia . It is situated in the US and in a school. Suddenly the students realize that everyone above the age of 15 is gone. Poof. Gone.

So when the teachers had finished reading the first chapter they left the classroom. They didn’t come back! Guess what happened! It turned out to be chaos! The teachers just left an envelope with a QR-code in. Nothing else. No instructions. Nothing. Someone knew that it was a QR- code and scanned it. There we found the instructions!

When the lessons were  finished the teachers came back! Lucky us! Some of us realized that we behaved EXACTLY as in the book and we didn’t know about it. We were 14 groups and 6 stayed calm in the chaos and followed the instructions and the rest .. well… Busy, busy doin’ nothing at all…

What is true?

 Yesterday 3 people died in Trollhättan, a city north of Gothenburg.

We are going to take a look at news reports around the world.

Since our iPads have been stolen you need to work with papers.  Do you remember what a VENN diagram is? Please, use the diagram and compare the news. What similarities can you find? What differences can you find? Are the pictures that are published the same in the news papers?

At last – how do you feel? Write about your thoughts. What did you, first of all, think of when you heard what had happened? You can write a few sentences as a blog comment.
