National Toys

Step 1: students use different sources to find out the information about their various national folk dolls/toys concerning the history and origin, materials they are usually made of, interesting facts/folk songs/poems about them, believes or superstitions connected with them, etc. Once students are through with their research they make the presentations of their work to the partner schools using MS Word/PP/Publisher/blog/video/email/Skype.

Step 2: students make their folk toys using the simplest materials such as paper, threads, straw or even plastic bottles and get ready the image, photo, video, PP instructions on how to make them as well as a special doll/toy’s message of love, respect, friendship etc. and share it with their partners.

Step 3: following partner’s instructions and making as many similar toys as they like, the partner students then share the results of their work in a virtual gallery and present the dolls/toys and their messages at school performances.
