"Money Matters" project - Belarus
The International Education and Resource Network (iEARN - www.iearn.org) is a great place to organize different projects and collaborate with students and teachers from more than 140 countries all over the world.
Our gymnasium No. 1 of Starye Dorogi has been taking part in iEARN projects since September 2009 and has collaborated with the teams from the USA, Canada, Mexico, Pakistan, India, Spain, Slovenia, Ukraine, Russia, Taiwan, Georgia, Uganda, Tunisia, Romania and some others.
Every year we participate in our favourite projects “Holiday Card Exchange” and “Learning Circles”. We are also fond of such projects as “My Country”, “My School, Your School”, “Global Food”, “On Day In The Life”, “My Country Flag”, “Special Place”, “UNESCO World Heritage Site” and many others.
In September 2013, the teacher of English Natalia Belozorovich worked out and organized “Money Matters” project (http://collaborate.iearn.org/space-2/group-250). Money Matters is an ongoing project where students are able to get into conversation about money, learn some facts about history of money and about money in other countries, discuss students’ pocket money and proverbs about money, make media products about money. Students are invited to carry out a research in the history of money in their own countries, to take pictures of money and describe them, to write what or who is represented on their coins and banknotes. Students discuss their pocket money and search and explain the meaning of the proverbs about money and illustrate the proverbs. Students search interesting facts about money and share with their partners and they are able to get into conversation about earning money.
We collaborate with Bahrain, Cameroon, Canada, India, Jordan, Morocco, Pakistan, Palestine, Qatar, Romania, Russia, Sierra Leone, Syria, Taiwan, Tajikistan, Ukraine, United Arab Emirates, United States.
