Time to think about holidays

My creation

I have used this card as an example how to do the writing task I set to my students: create a trading card as a postcard-style report.

This is what the task says:

• Think about how and where you are going to spend the week around Easter

• Take or choose a photo representing a holiday activity or place you are visiting

• Go to BigHugeLabs and click on Trading Card to create one

• Upload a photo; write a title, a subtitle and a sentence or two describing the idea behind the photo

• Create your card and share it on our Talking Cultures Wiki Holidays page.

I hope my students will enjoy the activity. I did.
