The first thing my students will do is writing a definition for the word INVENTION. We will write some of the definitions here just to start their way in the blog.

Hello everybody, here I am again on the net ready to start a new blog. This time is for 3rd E.S.O. As the students have to read a book entitled Grandad's gadgets, I've decided to ask my students to think, find and write about inventions and inventors in general. They can go backwards as far as the Stone Age and period by period they will come to our century. They may talk about very well known inventions like the wheel or be patient and find something rare and spectacular or vey specific. I don't mind as long as they search for information and write carefully paying attention to grammar. The idea is not to be afraid of writing even if they make mistakes, as they have to assume they will.
