New to the ACTF Shop: Sky Trackers en français
In Sky Trackers, Mike and Nikki are both scientists’ children, living beneath the massive dishes of a space tracking station in the heart of the Australian outback. Nikki is 13 and into science - her dream is to be the first person on Mars. Mike is 14 and into rock music - he thinks science sucks. Mike’s horse and guitar are the only things that make his life at the station bearable - until he falls for Nikki, that is.
For schools teaching French, this series could be used to address curriculum content descriptions including:
- Locate and process specific information in texts
- Respond to imaginative texts
- Interpret and explain interactions
- Create a bilingual version of a familiar text.
As the series incorporates factual space information, this French language version could also be used in science education at bilingual schools.
