Introduction

In a few weeks you are going to travel to Italy, but how much do you know about it?

Maybe not much, but you can’t go there without information, so in this webquest you are going to discover Italy and introduce it to future travellers, because your presentation will be shown in the intranet of our centre.

This webquest is the opportunity for planning your trip and then enjoying it for a week.

Get ready and enjoy your trip!




Task

In pairs you will surf the net looking for some information about Italy. Your task will consist of planning your own trip to Italy.

At the end of this Webquest you will have to elaborate a project-trip to Italy which will be displayed in a Power Point presentation to the rest of the class. You must also include a five to ten minutes oral report in front of the class.
