  42. 42. Learning Tasks and Activities 6• E-Book: Each boy in the class created their own electronic storybook telling their own story about why we should re-cycle. This was a highlight for them and often one of them would appear at my door before school asking if he could work on his storybook. The stories were shown when the boys did their presentations to other schools. Examples of an E-Books• Visits and Presentations: Initially the boys skyped a school and told them about the work they were doing and challenged them to collect as much as they had. We then went out on visits to other schools; a previous Model C school in Kempton Park, Yeoville Community School and Masibambane, our sister school in Orange Farm.
