Mi actividad preferida de Lengua el Primer Cuatrimestre

En lengua tuvimos muchas actividades muy divertidas y que aprendimos mucho pero sin duda tengo una favorita. Mi favorita es la actividad que consistía en hacer un cuento policial. Pero no fue así de fácil hacer un cuento de la nada. Vinos videos y leímos explicaciones que nos ayudaban a saber más del género policial, hasta hicimos un juego en el que nos disfrazabamos. Pero nuestro última actividad fue hacer el cuento que lo que tenías que hacer era un cuento policial pero tenía que estar preparado el cuento. Había que poner cuando ocurrió, cual fue el crimen, donde ocurrió u muchos más detalles que gracias a ellos nos pudimos capacitar para hacer el cuento, la actividad más divertida del cuatrimestre.

History Final Assignment

Resultado de imagen para child labourResultado de imagen para child labour

This year we have studied Industrial Revolution and slavery and we talked a lot about kids that worked in those times.

Now, do you really believe that child labour does not exist anymore?

First, pay attention to this definition from Wikipedia:

Child labour refers to the employment of children in any work that deprives children of their childhood, interferes with their ability to attend regular school, and that is mentally, physically, socially or morally dangerous and harmful. This practice is considered exploitative by many international organisations. Legislations across the world prohibit child labour. These laws do not consider all work by children as child labour; exceptions include work by child artists, supervised training, certain categories of work such as those by Amish children, some forms of child work common among indigenous American children, and others.

Think, investigate and prepare a presentation: 

Task 1

  • What is the difference between slavery and child work? Read the following text to find the answer. (1 slide)


Read the following webpages:



  • What are children´s rights? Make a list of 5,  the most important ones in your opinion. Say why you believe they are important. (1 slide)

Task 2

Read the following articles:

  • In two slides explain the case of child labour in Uzbekistán
  • Use another slide to show another case of slide labour in another country.



Now,  read about H&M and the problem with justice. Express your opinion. Give reasons from the text (2 slides: include a quotation from any of the articles)



  • Express your opinion and support your answer with quotations. Include sources to prove your ideas. (1 slide)

Task 3

Argentina: https://www.humanium.org/en/argentina/


  • Make a summary of the most shocking points for you and write your opinion (2 slides)
  • Explain what the problem is and try to think of solutions taking into account the rights of the child. (1 or 2 slides)

Task 4

  • Make a final conclusion comparing what happens today to the industrial revolution period. Account for your ideas. Give reasons and evidence. (1 slide)

Task 5

  • Now I want to read your thoughts, ideas, opinions and impressions of the concept of child labour. Always give reasons/evidence for your ideas. Here are a few sentence starters that you may like to use to help you get started:

(Choose 5 starters and complete the phrases ) (3 or 4 slides)

  • I learned … • I was surprised … • I’m beginning to wonder … • I discovered … • I feel … • I think I will … • I now realize that … • I agree with … • I do not agree with … • I would like someday to … • I would like to find out more about … • I admire… • I am surprised at… • I predict…
