Desde el Departamento de Biología y Geología, del CEAD «Mercedes Pinto» y dentro de la materia MEDIO NATURAL CANARIO, hemos propuesto la siguiente actividad, para que los alumnos puedan desarrollar su competencia lingüística, tanto en castellano como en Inglés, utilizando como línea conductora, el estudio de personajes relevantes, a lo largo del tiempo, en el conocimiento y protección de nuestro medio natural.
Biology and Geology Department.
This activity was carried out in English by a teacher ( who was selected for a mobility Erasmus+ in Dublin) and students from the Natural Science Department. We are not a CLIL school. This was an activity to introduce English in subjects which are taught in Spanish.
This activity is aimed to develop the language abilities in our students. Students have learnt about different people, from scientist to goatherds, who have actively participated in the protection of our environment and who have taught us a great deal about the Canary Islands and their natural landscape.
