A new international collaboration project is on the horizon:
Teddy Bears Around the World
Inspired by my school’s traveling mascot, I have created a blog that will provide the space to hang out and communicate with different teddy bears around the world. A place to hear more about their lives and adventures.This will allow our students to see each other’s countries, customs and traditions through the eyes of our “teddy bears” and open their horizons through a more global perspective.
The idea is to have an ongoing exchange (no deadlines, no pressure) to contribute stories, photographs or podcasts.
These contributions can be from the teddy bears point of view or from the students’ point of view telling a story ABOUT their teddy bear. We could have seasonal posts or specific “story starters”, such as:
- … how “Teddy” celebrates Thankgiving in USA
- … “Teddy” is going to the movies
- … New Year’s Eve tradition
- … “Teddy” and his favorite foods
- …”Teddy” looses his first tooth
- … “Teddy” watches TV
- …”Teddy”‘s favorite fairy tales
If you are interested in hanging out with us, please contact me providing information about your school and teddy bear and to receive a username to participate on the Teddy Bears Around the World blog.
