A List of Ideas for UK-related Activities
Match US/UK words - go to Joys of the English language
In the UK cars drive on the left hand side of the road. If your home country
drives on the right, try to imagine that you are taking a younger brother/sister
to play with a friend. You need to cross the road to get there. Show how
to cross safely in a country where cars drive on the other side to what
you are used to.
Find out about the three flags (St. George, St. Andrew and St. Patrick)
which combine to make the Union Jack. The Welsh flag is a red dragon on
a green and white background. It was adopted as the Welsh flag in 1959.
The red dragon is a symbol from the time of the Roman occupation, when
Welsh chiefs were known as dragons. Henry VII introduced the red dragon
into the Royal arms, but King James I of England later replaced it with
the Scottish unicorn.
Go to British Ideas from the Themes section
of The GuideZone for ideas on Welsh love spoons and clotted cream (no,
you don't use the spoon for eating the cream!).
