Travelling on the Eurostar Underwater Chunnel Train was a dream come true for me in 2014! I am very excited to share my experience on this ultra fast bullet train and guide learners through its history and how it became the worlds most incredible construction feat of the 20th century.
A PDF attachment for our young detectives to write down CLUES and NOTES while they solve the mystery will be posted on the classroom page prior to class. Learners may print out this sheet in black and white. Please have a pencil on hand as well.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
No formal assessment or grade will be given, but during the class, attention will be given to how much knowledge students already know about the subject matter and teaching will be adjusted accordingly.
40 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
