Units Summary
Through this topic, students will identify the different types of means of transportation present in their
surrounding community. They will have to recognize all the ways to get from one place to another, with the aim
to create a real connection between the transportation system and their daily activities. Students will be visiting
a web page created by their teacher for the purpose. They will also be given the opportunity to interact within
themselves, through completing an online pre-test, on, as well as, with some other technological
resources for the brainstorming and discussion of ideas and opinions. Student will watch informative sequence of
images through a movie maker presentation and investigate about those means more commonly used by them
and their families on an everyday basis. It is very important to highlight another focus of this project on the
aspect of having student to understand and appreciate the behavior to be observed when using the different
forms of transportation.

Evaluations Summary
Opening Evaluations

As to begin this topic, the teacher will provide students with an online pre-test found at to diagnose the general knowledge of students about the topic to be
taught. Then the teacher will present to students a SQA chart where they will be asked, what do they know
about means of transportation?; and give some examples according to their sources of movement. With this
information compiled we will fill out the first column of our SQA chart. Then students will watch a video about
the topic, taking notes of relevant information to proceed to a discussion circle where we all, would exchange
our opinions and ideas about the visual presentation. This will help them out to complete the two remaining
columns of their SQA chart. The teacher will invite students to sing along the new song and make the
movements involved in it.
Development Evaluations
During the development of the evaluation process, students will copy a vocabulary which must be illustrated
with pictures related to the topic, in class the teacher will prepare a large chart with each of the transportation
sources (land, water and air), and proceed to make original and creative drawings of means of transportation
which will be paste on the chart.

Closing Evaluations
To complete this evaluation process, students will present a funny dramatization of a day making use of the
public transportation system. For this they have had to already complete a selected mean of transportation
made out of cardboard, and show to the class the behavior and manners to be observed, through a moral
message at the end of their presentations. In class, prior to the presentation day they will be rehearsing with
the guidance of the teacher. Finally, students will be presenting a post-test, where they will share their
learning experiences throughout this topic.
