Some urban land uses are in conflict with others, as this cartoon shows. Explain which is the conflict expressed in the cartoon.

In the picture you can see the main stages involved in a fieldwork investigation.
First of all, you need to have a great idea. Where to find it? The main sources for your inspiration are the world around you: newspapers, magazines, conversations, observations, books, television or radio programmes…
You also need to define perfectly the question, issue or problem you want to study.
And you have to decide on the data you need to collect for your search.
Then, you must collect the data, analyse them and present them in your essay.
Finally, you have to conclude offering personal reflections about the studied question, issue or problem.
Have a good travel!
Aunque ahora empieza el verano y nos queda muy lejos noviembre, que es cuando se celebra en Estados Unidos Thanksgiving Day, concretamente el cuarto jueves del mes, nunca está mal aprender algunas cosillas relacionadas con la cultura americana.
¿Qué comen las familias ese día? Yes, you have guess it! Turkey, potatoes and vegetables!
Para ellos es un día muy importante, así que visten sus mejores galas, bendicen la mesa y comen todos juntos, grandparents, aunts, uncles, parents, children…:
«Dear Lord, on this Day, we thank you for the many blessings we have received during this past year. Amen.»
Y ahora lee este pequeño texto tomado de Elizabeth Laird, Faces of the U.S.A., New York, Longman, 1987, p. 69:
“The first Thanksgiving was celebrated in 1621 by the «Pilgrim Fathers,» some of the first Europeans who came to live in North America. At the end of the first year in their new land, they made a feast. They cooked the turkeys, pumpkins, and corn which the Indians had taught them to eat, and invited the Indians to share the meal. They said prayers, and thanked God that they were still alive (…)
After dinner, most of the Americans will watch the football game on TV. But first, it’s time for dessert. Everyone knows what it will be. The children even sing a song about it.
«Hurrah for the fun! Is the pudding done?
Hurrah for the pumpkin pie!”
Desde que los primeros peregrinos, los Pilgrim Fathers, compartieron su mesa con los indios Wampanoag y Pequamid, que vivían en los bosques vecinos, Thanksgiving Day es un día para compartir en familia y con los amigos y vecinos.
My favourite part was the excursion because I like talking with my friends and watching the vegetation and the animals. It was very beautiful.
Our favourite activity was the object project because it was a different one and it was original. We used different things to create the objects. It was very funny and we had a good time. Tomorrow, we’ll film a comercial.
My favourite thing today was walking on the mountains and the party at night.
My favourite part we did today is the walk on the mountains. It was funny, but now we’re tired.
Hoy hemos realizado una travesía muy chula por los Mallos de Riglos. El paisaje era espectacular.
Podréis descargar todas las fotos de hoy el domingo (las subiremos a carpetas para las que os daremos el acceso).
