The three levels of warriors:

Task A: Earth Warrior

This task is not too demanding cognitively and can easily be adapted for various learners. It involves just a little English (e.g. drawing a picture, writing a few sentences) and is a simple, thought-provoking activity about the project of the month.

Task B: Fire Warrior

This task requires conducting surveys, interviews, drawing graphs and finding out data and/or opinions about the project of the month. Various skills are practised: communicative, presentation, hypothesising, concluding.

Task C: Air Warrior

This task involves finding out more around the topic  of the month. It often involves exploration of work done by NGOs and environmental organisations, e.g. WWF, Zooniverse, IUCN, Practical Action.
