They will also learn to work in groups and it will also help with listening to each others ideas. Thematic instruction can also help meet the academic goals. The students are exposed to higher vocabulary when the teacher introduces the project. The teacher needs to figure on how to introduce the project and give the students a little information and then let them find the rest of the information on their own, this will keep the students interested and wanting to know more.
