Rabbits were first introduced in Australia in 1788 for their meat, and originally bred in rabbit farms and enclosures, until one October morning in 1859, when an English settler by the name of Thomas Austin released twenty-four wild rabbits on his property so that his guest could entertain themselves by hunting.

Verblära med Lockie Leonard

För att göra detta avsnitt lite mer aptitretande prövar jag i år att kombinera det med en serie, Lockie Leonard, som finns tillgänglig via Utbildningsradion. Serien är humoristisk och handlar om en tolvårig australiensisk pojke som flyttar till en ny ort och de problem han råkar ut för där. Det står på URs sida att målgrupp är årskurs 4-6 men om man inte väljer svensk text utan engelsk eller ingen text alls är den lämplig för äldre elever. De 14 avsnitten à 25 minuter finns tillgängliga för alla på URs hemsida och jag ger eleverna i läxa att se vissa avsnitt hemma och sedan gör vi olika skriftliga och muntliga uppgifter i skolan som kombinerar verblära med innehållet i serien.

Här är länkar till elevinstruktionerna på bloggen Digital portfolio samt info om hur läxan förhörs: Avsnitt 1 och 2. Vid utvärderingar var de flesta eleverna nöjda med detta arbetsområde.
