On April 8th, Grade 6 students participated in their first Little Ambassador’s Fair at SUIS Qingpu. The Little Ambassador’s project involved students choosing a country of their choice and becoming their ambassador; they researched four main categories: culture, landmarks, cities and natural features. Students were broken into separate groups and instructed to design a board to display the interesting facts about their respective country.
They then had an opportunity to present their findings in a fun and engaging way by educating the rest of their middle school peers through trivia and other creative activities. These activities included Japanese paper folding (origami), British darts, Swiss Chocolate…
The fair is an example of project-based learning which helped students to take what they have learned in English class and put it to use in a meaningful way. The Little Ambassador’s project itself is meant to foster understanding and friendship between nations and to help promote a sense of international mindedness amongst students.
Words from students
Little Ambassador is a meaningful and unforgettable event. We have leant a lot about the culture and tradition of different countries. it also helps to improve the friendship between Grade 6 and Grade 7 students. I really like this kind of project-based learning.
This activity is very interesting. I enjoyed it with my partners happily. We gave face drawing on the audiences’ faces. Our group learnt to work as a team, and we were happy to see lots of Grade 7 students come and listen to our introduction to Italy.
