Aistear: Travel Agents

A nice topic for the end of the school year is the Travel Agents.

I got some travel brochures in the travel agents for the display and Twinkl have a lovely photo-pack on different landmarks from all over the world. This is an excellent focus to introduce the topic and to look at different countries too. Twinkl also have a role-play pack for the travel agent including booking forms, vocabulary and passport templates. The class each made a passport that they would need for their travels.

Each week of the overall topic we focused on a different country, this year we looked at Egypt. We discovered how you could travel there and what they could see. We also looked at the story of Tutankhamen in History. The travel agents is a great topic where you can easily see cross-curricular integration in both the Aistear time and also discrete lessons.
