    • Aboriginal Australians and the white population, a troubled relationship - Séquence pédadogique (cle.ens-lyon.fr)

    • Recommendé par Marie Luce Morin (Ac. Rouen) :
      "Cherchant une tâche finale pour la séquence aventure en 4ème, j'ai pensé à une émission télé dans laquelle les participants se montrent débrouillards et sportifs.
      Je suis tombée sur l'émission américaine « The Amazing Race ».  La « saison » 18 , épisode 2 se déroule en Australie.
      Je pense que la tâche intermédiaire va consister à se présenter pour le casting de cette émission: les pays que j'ai déjà visités, les expériences que j'ai déjà eues (nourriture, moyen de transport etc...) et à présenter la personne avec qui l'on part: la règle du jeu; une équipe de 2 personnes."
