This is a pupil presentation called the S1 Citizenship Challenge. 2010 the theme was Latin America. Pupils of S1 Hamilton Grammar were assigned a country to research and present back. The class winners progress to the Year Group Final. This was exemplified as good practice for Curriculum for Excellence when it was S1 African Adventure.

  • It was a class vote. The pupils are aged 11 and 12 years old. The vote was based not only on the content of their presentation, but also their delivery, and the animations they had prepared. The real focus of this activity was to teach them powerpoint, but we like to give the pupils a theme. So I do think you are being a wee bit harsh on such young pupils, but then again you weren't to know.

  • This is not completely true. The information that's being present here is old. The bolivian's living situation is no longer the same as is shown in these slides. Furthermore, there are many grammatical mistakes throughout the presentation. Who the hell gave these punkheads a prize?!

Transcript of "Bolivian By Chloe And Alexis"

  1. 1. Bolivia By Alexis and Chloe x
  2. 2. Bolivian poor Houses <ul><li>>>>poor houses </li></ul>Bolivian poor houses are the most common to be really dirty and poor , they live and eat poorly they wash there clothes in a bucket of disgusting water . They don’t really get much to eat or do because they are poor . They have nothing to play on like computers , play station x boxes ect . The fun things they would have to do is washing up , picking weeds , and picking corn ect .
  3. 3. Bolivian rich houses This is a rich house in Bolivia. It is not the best looking house but im afraid this is all they have . They could wash better and everything in a rich house . They would also have nice clothes and have lots of good thing too eat maybe not much but they will have better things too eat than the poor .
  4. 4. Bolivian Weather Although Bolivia lies near the equator, the Bolivia climate and weather varies greatly from region to region. The weather in Bolivia is strongly influenced by the extreme differences in altitude and the amount of rainfall a specific region receives, gives the country a variety of climates. There are basically two seasons in Bolivia, summer and winter. Bolivia lies in the southern hemisphere, therefore the seasons are opposite compared to the northern hemisphere. The summer months in Bolivia are from November through March. In the summer it usually sees the most amount of rainfall and is warmer. The winter months are from April through October and are typically cooler and drier.
  5. 5. Charity <ul><li>We partner with children’s homes and schools in Bolivia to improve health and educational conditions with the ultimate goal that every child and youth whose lives we touch can make a better future for him/herself and become a contributing member to society. We connect those who want to make a difference in the world by ensuring that one-hundred percent of their donation goes to those in Bolivia who demonstrate initiative and responsibility but need a helping hand to overcome the unfortunate circumstances in which they were born. </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>The current flag of Bolivia was originally adopted by Bolivia in 1851. The state flag and ensign (and war flag) is a horizontal tricolour of red, yellow, and green with the Bolivian coat of arms in the centre. The According to one source, the red stands for Bolivia's brave soldiers, while the green symbolizes fertility and yellow the nation's mineral deposits. </li></ul><ul><li>According to new constitution the Walhalla is established as one of symbols of Bolivia (with flag, national anthem, coat of arms, the cockade; kantuta flower and patujú flower). </li></ul><ul><li>Despite its landlocked status, Bolivia has a naval ensign used by navy vessels on rivers and lakes. It consists of a blue field with the state flag in the canton bordered by nine small yellow five-pointed stars, with a larger yellow five-pointed star in the fly. The nine small stars represent the nine departments of Bolivia, and the larger star the nation's right to access the sea (access that it lost in 1884 in the War of the Pacific). </li></ul>The Flag
  7. 7. <ul><li>Bolivia has a population of about 8 million people. Altiplano is the most densely populated region of the country. The urban areas of the country include La Paz, the administrative capital with a population of about 2 million, Cochabamba with about 800,000, Santa Cruz, and industrial centre has a population of about 850, 000 and Sucre is the judicial capital of Bolivia. About 55% of the total population is indigenous, pure Native Americans who come from the Quechua or Asmara ethnic groups. Most others are Mestizos with a small percentage of people from European or African descent. Spanish is the colonial language, but 70 % of Bolivians also speak Aymara, Quechua, and other dialects. Outside the big cities, many people don’t speak Spanish at all. </li></ul><ul><li>Bolivia is the poorest country in South America and the standard of living is quite low. In spite of its poverty it happily clings to its third world traditions. Bolivians are proud of their heritage and strongly resist cultural change. </li></ul>People
  8. 8. <ul><li>The James‘s Flamingo ( Phoenicopterus jamesi ), also known as the Puna Flamingo , is a South American flamingo, named for Harry Berkeley James. It breeds on the high Andean plateaus of Peru, Chile, Bolivia and Argentina. It is related to the Andean Flamingo, and the two are often placed in the genus Phoenicoparrus . </li></ul><ul><li>It is a small and delicate flamingo, approximately 3 feet in height. Its plumage is pale pink, with bright carmine streaks around the neck and on the back. When perched a small amount of black can be seen in the wings. There is bright red skin around the eye. The legs are brick-red and the bill is bright yellow with a black tip. Immature birds are greyish. </li></ul><ul><li>James's Flamingo is similar to other South American flamingos, but the Chilean Flamingo is pinker, with a longer bill without yellow, and the Andean Flamingo is larger with more black in the wings and bill, and yellow legs. </li></ul>Wildlife This is a lamba but we think it looks like an alpaca .
  9. 9. Money <ul><li>Bolivian money has undergone so many changes, it's hard to know how long the images on this page will be valid. OK, let's not be pessimistic. These bills and coins have been in circulation for nearly 20 years now so maybe they're here to stay. You can read more about the history and background of Bolivian currency here. Once you've done that you can move on to my pages on the Bolivian economy, banking in Bolivia, money exchange, and information on doing business in Bolivia. This page is linked from my Bolivian Economy and Bolivian Currency pages and will contain only photos of our money. </li></ul>
  10. 10. <ul><li>The ancient history of Bolivia is first and foremost woven into the great Andean empires of the Aymara civilization. This innovative and powerful culture was eventually conquered by the Incas at the end of the 15th century. In their obsessive search for gold and silver, the Spanish arrived here in the 16th century; they quickly defeated the Incas, and changed the economic and social fabric of Bolivia forever. The capital of Bolivia is La Paz . During its 300 years of colonial rule, Spain continually searched for precious metals, and in the process forced Indian labour to do the work. The silver mines they discovered at Potosi proved to be the largest ever in the western hemisphere. In 1809, the &quot;Liberator&quot;, Simon Bolivar, ( Bolivia's namesake ) began the battle for independence. After the Spanish defeat in 1824, Bolivia finally gained its hard-fought freedom in 1825. </li></ul>The Map
