|Wondering if you would be interested in joining Ming the Minibus Meets Interesting People. This is a follow up previous project Ming the Minibus Travels the World.
We are basically looking for two schools from every country of the world.
In Ming Meets Interesting People we will email you a template which can be folded into a small paper or cardboard Ming. Your students the send us a digital photo of Ming with an interesting person. Remember that everybody is interesting, friends, teachers, parents, singers, actors, politicians etc.
Each student then writes a mini-biography about the person of interest. This can be from one sentence for kindergarten, grade 1 and ESL students or up to a few paragraphs for older students.
1. . All photos and text received by 15th December will be included in project.
2. When we have enough pictures from around the world my students will put together the first digital book called “Ming Meets Interesting People Around the World”.
3. When we eventually have 12 photos or more from each continent we will create books titled “Ming Meets Interesting People in Europe” Ming Meets Interesting People in Asia” Ming Meets Interesting People in Africa etc If there are enough pictures from a country we will do a book on it “ Ming Meets Interesting People in Russia” etc
4. The project is open to all students however we would like teachers to pick two of the most interesting from each class,
What is required. The subject now is “Interesting People” e.g. My mum is an interesting person because she makes all her own clothes.” From simple to complex depending on student’s age and level of English. Final books will also be sent to schools throughout China to assist with learning English.
PowerPoint’s of the books Ming in ………..are available and can be emailed to participating schools. To help motivate students there are 11 minute cartoons on YOUTUBE. I will do this later when the time permits.
