Google's daily shows a new doodle -you know, these scribbles of their name that sometimes get true artwork ?!!

Today's doodle is related to Wales saint patron (St David) :

1st March, 2018 doodle by Google

1st March, 2018 doodle by Google

Phil Haig's article [from metro UK website] :

St David’s Day Google Doodle celebrates Welsh National Anthem &  Triple Harp -

Happy St David’s Day to all the proud Welsh people celebrating across the country.

[...] Google have got involved with the celebrations this year by rustling up a Doodle to honour St David’s Day and some of the finest traditions in Wales.

The daffodils are recognisable, but what instrument is the woman playing and what piece of music is shown in the Doodle ?"

------------------------

Try and answer the two questions !

The first sketch from the programme's here !

"American Gothic"

was painted  by Grant Wood.

The artist  "combined Americana with European technique. Inspired by the window that recalled the cathedrals he had seen in Europe during his training and travels, [Grant] Wood posed his quintessentially American figures in a "rigid frontal arrangement" that recalls Northern Renaissance art, while mimicking that movement's close attention to detail."

(From "15 Things You Might Not Know About American Gothic" - June 2015)

"The problem we all live with" (painted in1963 by Norman Rockwell) evokes Ruby Bridges, the first black American to enter a white school... she needed to be escorted by guards to access school safely !

You work for the WWF Advertising Department : you'll have to design the front page of a  leaflet campaigning against man-made global warming effects.

The WWF = the World Wildlife Fund : a global environment-friendly organization created 56 years ago. Its logo 

shows a black and white panda (a protected species)

Watch the picture below attentively... then write as many words or phrases (expressions) as possible !

 

TIP : Reuse the previous vocabulary activities (Questions 1 to 5 page 31 - workbook, ex. #1-2 -copy) and the vocabulary mind map on the environment you worked on last week.
