What a great adventure!!

You are going to prepare a programme to spend 1 day in Selwo Aventura Park (or similar). Work in a group of 4 students.

Selwo Aventura (Málaga)
Selwo Marina (Málaga)
Oasys (Almería)
Valwo (Castilla y León)

______________________________________________________________
§ Show your partners the information you have got and decide the order and time of the activities.
§ Elaborate the set of rules of the park.
§ Choose some pictures for your programme.
§ Elaborate the activities programme

______________________________________________________________
§ Presentation to the rest of the class
§ Evaluation: each group ask a question to the rest of groups and take notes on the evaluation cards. Then each group punctuate the routes, the workshops, the adventure activities and the order of all activities with 1, 2 or 3 points. The group with the higher score will be the winner, so their programme will be hanged on the classroom notice board.

THE MOST INTERESTING PLACE I HAVE EVER VISITED: THE CITY OF LIGHT

What other city is so photographed, filmed and sung about?
Did you know that everybody went to Paris till Dickens popularized London?


Things have changed a lot in Paris since the prisoner from 105 North Tower of the Bastille Prison got free and since he and his daughter, Lucie Manette, had to go back to this city, where that terrible machine of death, the Guillotine, waited hungrily for the enemies of France.
At this time, people travelled in coaches. Coaches were pulled by horses. The roads were very bad. There were no trains or cars. Journeys were long and difficult. Men on horses took messages and letters. There were no post offices or telephones, no computers or internet, no emails or phone calls.
Let’s explore Paris, the city where Quasimodo and Esmeralda lived and where Charles Darnay fell victim to the wrath of the French revolution.
TASK: You are going to spend 24 hours in Paris. Where will you go? What will you do? Plan out your 24 hours, including the places mentioned in the novels Tale of Two Cities and The Hunchback of Notre Dame.

PROCESS
1. Find useful information before planning your visit (Use the list of questions below)
2. Decide how to spend your time
3. Send a postcard to a friend, starting " Paris rules! It is the most interesting place I have ever visited."
