Day 10 – School Days
After meeting with the local family yesterday you are inspired to learn more about how people live in different countries. You and your family decide to go out and visit a local market. When you’re there you meet a student who tells you all about what it’s like to go to school in their country. The student also gives you a page from their diary that shows you what a typical school day is like for them.
Here is an example of a school diary for a student from Germany.
8:00 - 8:45 a.m.
8:45 – 9:30 a.m.
9:30 - 9:40 a.m.
9:40 -10:25 a.m.
11:30 – 12:15 p.m.
12:15- 1:00 p.m.
Think about your school and what you typically do in a day. Compare it with the diary from the German student. What is similar? What is different? In your blog, tell us:
What is different is that there school starts at 8:00 o'clock and we start school at 8:50. What is similar is that some of there subjects are the same.
- Whether you would rather go to school in New Zealand or in Germany
- Why you feel that way
I would rather go to school in New Zealand because you wouldn’t have to get up as early as you would have to in Germany and also I like the school I am going to in New Zealand.
Think about your favourite subject at school. In your blog tell us:
- The name of your favourite subject
- Why it is your favourite subject
My Favourite subject is reading because I love reading different kinds of books and also the more you read the more you learn.
