We've been recently involved in an interesting project, "The Lunch Box", an international language and cultural awareness project. The main goal is to use the second language for an authentic purpose and to become aware of the similarities and differences between cultures. There are five stages in this project and the activities in each stage are going to be completed by a certain date.

The participants are:

- Australia: Laurimar Primary School, Melbourne, VictoriaDoncaster Gardens Primary School, Melbourne, VictoriaOberthur Primary School, Perth, Western Australia , and  The Hutchins School, Hobart, Tasmania 

- The United Kingdom: Sinfin School, Derby
- Jordan: Mafraq 

We're currently in stage one of this project which needs to be completed by Friday, February 4th...and we're done! We have joined the group on google and also the teachers' blog on Posterous to go with the project and then located our country on the map and  recorded our voices on Woices Map.
