Choosing a Destination - Day 1

Choosing a Destination -
The world is a very big and very cool place. There are currently 196 countries and approximately 7.1 billion people living on earth. For this project we are going to focus on just 10 countries across 6 continents – Canada (North America), Mexico (Central America), Chile (South America), England (Europe), Germany (Europe), South Africa (Africa), United Arab Emirates (Middle East), Japan (Asia), Malaysia (South-East Asia), and Australia (Australasia).
Please click on the World Map tab on the main menu. It will bring you to a big map. One by one click on the names of the countries and ready the ‘Quick Facts’ about each place.
Activity 1
After you have read the quick facts about each place you must choose ONE country that you would like to ‘visit.’ On your blog post the name of the country and tell us why you have chosen to visit it. Please give, at least, two reasons for choosing the country.

Activity 2
On Google, research the country that you have chosen to visit and write, in your own words, three interesting facts about that country. They must be facts that weren’t already provided on the World Map.

After I watched the videos about all the country and read all the quick facts. I chose england. One of the reasons why I want to visit England is because of the amazing cottage pie and other different kinds  of foods I haven’t tried before. Another reason why like this country is because of the amazing sites.

Three interesting facts:

  • England is the most populated country in the UK (United Kingdom).
  • England is the largest country in Great Britain and the UK (United kingdom).
  • French was an official language used for about 300 years. (1066 to 1362).

  1. Hi Annalisa,

    I have to apologise as both Dan and I read and tried to comment on your blogs a number of times throughout the month of December. Fortunately, Mrs. Tui was able to change the settings on your blog site in January so you can now receive comments but I wanted to send you a special message to let you know that we've been reading and enjoying your posts the whole time! Please know that we've been regularly checking your site and trying to write back :)

    We hope that you enjoyed the Summer Learning Journey programme. I'll look forward to coming into St Pius X soon to bring certificates and prizes.

    See you then!

    Rachel :-)
