I have been working closely with 2Simple’s biggest football fan, Andy ‘Wolf’ Hopkins on creating a range of APPtivities around the theme of the World Cup.
All these can be used by your class today. Click on the titles to go straight to the APPtivities.
Bring data handling to life with this meaningful context for a database.
Write a report about a football match using adjectives and connective phrases to make the report an exciting read!
Imagine you are the editor of Pitch Perfect, a new football magazine. Create an eye-catching front page to excite readers, including interesting headlines and pictures.
Create a profile of a football player. Think about what team or country they play for, their skills and statistics. You could use your internet research skills to find out interesting facts about the player.
I had a request via the 2Simple Facebook page to create an APPtivity to support children as they research facts about countries in the World Cup. We have come up with eight templates to represent each of the groups in the tournament. You can find them here:
Why not plan a trip to the place where it all happens. Our international team have created this South African itinerary template to help you plan your virtual visit.
If you have used any of these with your class, then do let us know. If you also have any suggestions for other APPtivities, then either email me firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a comment in the box below.
