One of our major projects this term has been to publish a magazine. Our magazine, now published, is called ‘Global UPdate’ and tomorrow we are hosting a magazine launch for friends and family.
Writing our magazine has been a fun, rewarding and, at times, challenging task. It has involved a lot of hard work, dedication and enthusiasm to complete the magazine.
The magazine was first introduced to us by the teachers at the beginning of Term 4. We couldn’t wait to begin and had lots of ideas about what we might be able to include in the magazine. Our magazine was to focus on similarities and differences of the lives of children from all around the world.
After we had all chosen a topic, we began our research. Our research involved Skyping, blogging, emailing, interviewing and gathering information from books and the internet. We spoke with students and teachers from all around the globe – from Japan, China, India, Hong Kong, Germany, England and Canada.
Some of our articles include:
– Step into Schools
– Fun School Yard Games
– Top Beats from Around the World
– Furry Friends From Far Away
– Natural Disasters…
and many, many more!
Our magazine are being sold for $15.00 and the profits are going to the Red Cross, who help people all around the world.
We are very excited about the official launch of Global UPdate tomorrow!
