Top Herbier Ita

Developing key competencies in the classroom is essential if children are to be equipped with the skills and capabilities which will help them do well in life. In this unit plan students are asked to make a herbarium of pressed leaves. This is an interdisciplinary classroom activity which uses science, Italian L2, art and design and technology. Its completion allows students to play an active role in the learning process and acquire interpersonal skills through doing; it also builds and draws on what they know about natural science through research and observation. In addition, it improves their linguistic skills in Italian. All this is achieved by engaging students in the authentic activity of creating a herbarium.
