A collection of activities for students to create a project based on their trip away outside of the classroom.

This teaching resource is a great collection of activities to cater for those students who are away on their holidays abroad.

Whether it is during the school term or just over the holidays, this holiday project is a great way to engage students in their learning, but also allow them a creative outlet to share their holiday when they come back.

This project kit includes activities to support students in: organising, planning, timetables, art, time zones, measurement, geography, history, time, reading, film reviewing, geometry, critiquing and reflecting, writing, grammar, vocabulary, mapping, currency and money, LOTE.

The following project activities include:

Before issuing this resource, make sure you go over the following steps:

  1. Discuss with your student how long they are going to be away for and what their trip will involve, (flights, places, duration…).
  2. Read over the resource and choose which parts you think would be appropriate for your student and their abilities.
  3. Look over the checklist with your student or students parent and see how many of each sheet you need to print. Some pages need to be printed multiple time such as the flight log and the diary entry sheet. You might need to give them some spare copies if you think appropriate.
  4. The amount of countries visited will also determine how many pages in the passport that will be needed.
  5. Discuss the best way to lay out their work, what kind of workbook will be appropriate to use. For the passport, this can be printed as a mini booklet, or can be cut out and pasted in a smaller sized book.
