My viewpoints on the Bank of Common Knowledge

Hello everybody!!

I am here again to talk about a new mission that we have had!! We have created a bank of common knowledge for CLIL e-projects on Pinterest!! Each of the 32 students of my Master's class has posted 6 free resources and without copyright on a common board of Pinterest. 
It has been a really good way of knowing a bit more about Pinterest. I hadn't seen a bank of common knowledge like that before, so, in my opinion it has been a meaningful challenge and I like it! We have also taken into account that the resources we post don't have copyright and we can share them as we saw in the previous challenge.
I think it is good to give it a try at school and we, as teachers, create a bank of common knowledge with our students. By doing that, they will have the opportunity to add resources as valued as the teacher's ones.
The six resources that I have chosen to post are:
How to make a minibook: "The very hungry caterpillar". A good story to review the days of the week, the fruits or the life cycle of a butterfly in Sciences. The kids will retell the story with their own minibooks!
