When we have finished reading the first chapter I want you to work in your groups. The groups will get different tasks. Please, help each other to find the answers - use the iPads if you want to. Everyone has to know the answers since we use the app Random Name Selector. Remember? !

In the text we read about Meridienne's graduation party. What is that?
Please, show at least three examples and differences between the American school system and the Swedish.
