World Cup worksheets

World_cup_logoThe FIFA World Cup is here again, causing great enjoyment for millions and a huge distraction for students who should really be revising for their exams. I have created the following activities to work the World Cup into my ICT lessons, with each giving an opportunity for students to develop and demonstrate their skills to present information accurately and carefully.

Of course to support this unit I have also made a new topic in What2Learn – Topic code 869723 – the FIFA World Cup. The games within this topic will both develop student knowledge of how to use a range of computer applications, but also increase their general knowledge of some of the countries taking part in this summer’s tournament.

Remember, as a teacher you can see all of the scores your students get in What2Learn learning games. See our teacher guide for help with this.

Activity One: Ticket Design

In this activity students will use DTP software (or a graphics package) to design the tickets for matches at the World Cup.

Learning aims:

  • To learn how to alter page orientation and page size
  • To consider writing for audience
  • To develop understanding of how to position graphics and text to create an effective layout.

Lesson outline:

There is a single resource needed to deliver this activity – the PowerPoint presentation ‘Ticket.ppt’ (below). The first slide introduces the task and requires students to decide in pairs what the ticket should look like and what is should contain. This should lead to a class discussion on this topic. The second slide provides the main task and clarifies the features the ticket needs to include. About halfway through their working time, students should be stopped and shown the final slide – a copy of an actual ticket for a match at the tournament. Following a class discussion on this students should return to and improve their own ticket designs.

Activity Two: World Cup Planner

In this exercise students will edit a template and a table structure. They will then use research skills and a range of presentation techniques to create an attractive planner.

Learning aims:

  • To understand the power and value of templates
  • To learn how to edit the structure of a table
  • To develop understanding of how to position graphics and text to create an effective layout.

Lesson outline:

There is a single resource needed to deliver this activity – the worksheet ‘World Cup Planner’ (below). The worksheet provides full instructions. Students should be given time to print their completed work towards the end of the lesson.

Activity Three: Word Processing

In this exercise students will create an accurate document suitable for publication.

Learning aims:

  • To recognize the problems in being over-reliant on spellcheckers
  • To learn how to present text in columns
  • To develop understanding of how to position graphics and text to create an effective layout.

Lesson outline:

To help students understand that spellcheckers cannot be trusted begin by showing the presentation ‘ode to the spellchecker’ (below). After discussion of the presentation students should be given a copy of the ‘word processing instructions’ sheet and directed to open an electronic copy of the document ‘Ronaldinho fails to make the cut’. They should begin by trying to find the fifteen mistakes in the document – by highlighting the errors (none of which will be highlighted by spellchecker) they will be able to keep count of the number they have found. A whole-class focus on what the mistakes are should follow. Students should then follow all instructions on the rest of the worksheet.

Resources:

Ode to the Spell Checker – click to open, right click to save.

Word processing instructions – click to open, right click to save.
