I. Good afternoon, my dear girls and boys! I want to show you my great collection of postcards. They are from all over the world. Many years ago people were used to send and receive postcards. Have you ever sent or received a postcard? They are nice. Am I right? Could you guess what we will do today
II.I want to tell you about online project that allows to send and receive post cards from all over the world. The project is called Postcrossing and can be found at: http://www.postcrossinng.com My profile is at postcrossinng.com/Natalyushka Let’s look at the great website for exchanging postcards.
III. Let’s start. I have received 110 postcards and sent 108 postcards. Look at the map. What countries did I send post cards to? ( red line )What countries did I receive postcards from? ( blue line ) Could you tell me country and nationality? How long did the postcard travel? Could you tell me the distance of travelling?
IV. Now we will learn how to send the postcard. Let’s request an address. You will be given a real address and a postcard ID. It is very important. You must write it on the postcard. The recipient will need it to register your postcard on this website.
V. Read the profile, the information about the person you will write to. What kind of the postcard he (she) wants. What interesting things do you know about him ( her )
VI. Choosing the postcard.
VII.I would like you to read and analyze how to write the postcard properly.
VIII. Some rules of writing postcards: greeting, some interesting facts or description of the card, date, temperature…wishes
VIII. Let’s work in groups of 3-4 students. Each group will do all the steps and write the postcard. ( some interesting facts about Baikal, the place where you live)
