My new topic at school is 'America'
I've twisted the curriculum around a bit to focus on the earliest Americans and then the Civil War. After half term the kids will be able to choose any American theme to study as a mini topic.
I began the topic by asking the class to note down what they knew about America.
Canadians do not like being confused with Americans.
They don't have a Queen.
Statue of Liberty.
Civil rights movement.
They were the only country to drop an atomic bomb.
Baseball and other strange sports.
War of Independence.
The stars and stripes.
There is a town called Springfield.
Vietnam beat them in a war.
A big army but not that good at winning against small countries.
They were involved in D Day.
