In April and May 5th year pupils of the primary school in Nerola took part in workshops with the Catholic Religion Teacher concerning the different religions of the people representing the Countries involved in our Erasmus+project. After reading various books and articles, surfing the net and after open discussions, they realized a 3d poster that summarised through symbols the main similarities and differences of the two religions: Catholilicism and Islamism, stressing information such as name, origin and symbols of each religion; minister, sacred texts and main feasts. 3rd and 4th year children realized posters about Europe, stressing the countries of the project, their capital cities and flags. 1st and 2nd year pupils realized real products on Euro. They played Monopoly using coins and banknotes made by themselves. They had a lot of fun!
As far as the lower secondary school is concerned, students realized identity cards about the countries of our projects and those of the UK and Spain, whose languages they study at school. They highlighted geographical info (name, position and map of the Country, geographical conformation, rivers, lakes, mountains, climate, capital city, main cities, flag, economy, religion, language, currency and cultural aspects such as food and drink and main monuments). They wrote posters in groups and hung them on the walls of their classrooms. Some of them in group concentrated on Europe in general: the origin of the name, what Europe is (according to the historian Jacques le Goff), the common roots of the European Countries, the myth of Europe in literature, History and Art. They virtually interviewed Le Goff (the so called “Impossible interview”) asking him important questions such as the birth of Europe, Charlemagne and the first attempt to create the UE, the founding fathers of the European Union, non EU-Countries and reasons why some European countries are not in the EU, the first European elections, the European values and our common roots, democracy and human rights.
They realized virtual products (ppt presentations) about that.
