METHODOLOGY

Play the video (in Spanish) and ask students to answer the following questions (in English):

  • What are the 6 aspects of the food agroindustrial system that impact on the planet?
  • What are the solutions presented in the video to reverse global warming?

After that, ask them to think of what we can do to help reverse global warming in different areas:

  • Individually
  • Locally
  • Nationally

 

PRACTISE YOUR SPANISH

  • Since the video is in Spanish, this is a good activity to practice their listening skills.
  • You can ask students to write the words that they don’t understand and ask them to tell you them at the end of the video.
  • Ask them to mention at least one new word they have learnt.
