Hi Mrs. Khater I visited suggested website http://www.timeforkids.com and found it to be very beneficial, and practical, when it comes to teaching learners several issues about life related fact and practices. In the games section, and under” Want to save the Earth? Then: “. The rule of the game is about situation from our daily life where things are done in a way to hurt the environment and not help it. The players/ learners will get to be familiar with the rules of the game very quick. So the idea of the game is to click on certain sections of a big picture for things every one of us do on regular basis. Things like eating, showering, cooking, preparing box lunches, using our refrigerators and closets. Actually it is not played as any other game, yet it could be made into a game with questions and answers designed in the target language to enrich the vocabulary of the learner and help his critical thinking when it comes to problem solving in the foreign language. Now on choosing a certain situation from the main picture and clicking on it, a second window will open with suggestions on how to better deal with that selected situation to help the environment and preserve its resources. Like for instance if you were to chose the lunch box image and click on it, the box that will appear will include a note with a HINT on what is the best way to pack your lunch to minimize the amount of the throwaway garbage by packing only reusable containers. Imagine that HINT appearing in Arabic for example when the Arabic basic course student clicks on the picture. There will be couple questions associated with the HINT. Questions like write 20 – 50 in Arabic, words on how to minimize the everyday garbage amount the students take to school? I think this is yet another appropriate website and a vital resource for any language teacher to tab in and redesign it, so to speak to fit his/ her students learning goals and objectives though it was originally created for children. Good job Mrs Khater, thanks. John Kaninya
