Welcome to the 'A Week in the Life...' Project 14-1

A Flat Connections Project for students of around age 8-10
‘A Week in the Life...’ is part of the Flat Connections group of global projects.

Essential Questions Which Will Be Answered:
  1. What are the similarities and differences among children around the world?
  2. How can we connect with each other through our commonalities?
  3. How does your geography where you live impact your topic?

Students, your assignment is to work with your team of kids from different schools to:

1. Do some research on a week in the life of children in your school around these topics:
  • School time
  • Languages
  • Clothing
  • Housing
  • Transportation
  • Leisure time
  • Food
  • Celebrations
  • Environment
2. Complete a team project sharing your information and ideas to the rest of the project group
  • Collect multimedia artifacts and decide as a team what and how you want to share these
  • Each classroom will be responsible for editing a number of team projects
3. Upload your project into the table on the Final Project Page for your group.
4. View all the group projects and compare and contrast the results.
