Mar de plástico day 2: mar-moria

B77CB3DE-1F36-4A2C-BFBF-CAD0D4A879E3Today we learned how plastics, micro plastics, and micro fibers affect sea life using the Mar-Moria game in my plastic ocean unit.  This game is available as an a’la carte  if you don’t have time for a unit but want to get students thinking about conservation of the seas!

First, students read about different sea creatures and the most common problems they face, then they played the memory game in teams!

There is a strict no English rule so they can help teammates make a match but they have to use TL all the time or lose a turn! It was so much fun! Watch them here! With 15 minutes to read and 30 to play, we got to do two rounds! They really acquired a lot of the key cognates and even acquired many of the sea creature names very quickly!

When i made this game, I was hoping it would be really engaging while helping them get tons of input and now that we have played, I can say for sure that it did!
