Introduction to Host the World Cup.
Show the video of the announcement of Russia winning the right to host 2018 World Cup.
Explain that this project is going on in different schools, possibly around the world and that each of our Y7 classes will be representing a different country.
Ask for things a country needs to take into consideration before making a bid. Explain that the children will need to put together a short presentation that will be shown online along with every other school so that it can be voted on. As the project progresses children will be posting information to their own Posterous site for their country in order to gain support.
Show Russia’s bid video
and England’s video
Ask children to consider what country they would like to represent – discuss amongst themselves before presenting their suggestions to the whole class. As a whole group then decide on the country to represent.
