Let's celebrate EU 60!





French and Italian students celebrated the 60th anniversary of the Treaties of Rome with a Skype sessions some days ago.



The students are involved in the etwinning project "Let's play EU 60" and they are working on the European Union since September 2016.

To celebrate this event we decided to meet, even if only virtually, and talk about school, free time and Europe during the English class. We couldn't talk for too long because both schools had also other classes.




Before the meeting students had the chance to think about the questions they would have asked in this shared doc.






Finally we met and even though we had some technical problems we solved them and we could talk and meet: it was a wonderful experience and a great way of celebrating EU 60!





We also voted for the best logo for our etwinning project during this week and we chose among the following:




And the winner is ...


Camille's logo! 



Congratulations!

Mystery Skype

This morning students of class I G of the school "L. Da Vinci - O. Nucula" had been involved in a mystery skype with students from the etwinning project "1 smile, makes 2 smiles".

During the activity they had to guess where each school was from, to do so some students asked and answered questions,


some others looked on maps to find out the country,





other took notes and searched for info on the internet.

After the questions they discovered that the students on the other side of the screen live in the Czech Republic.


After that Italian and Czech students took some time to look for other information on the two countries and asked other questions to know a bit more on these two nations.

Here is a slideshow of the experience we had this morning.

Movies and language activities

Within the etwinning project "Making Films, Making Friends" students are creating language activities on movies and on scenes from films they liked.
First they watched a film or a scene and then in groups they created language activities for their mates. To do so Italian students used the Learning Apps (https://learningapps.org/) while Norwegian students used kahoot (https://getkahoot.com/).

Here is a thinglink where we collected all their works. The blue tags are by Norwegian students and the green ones are by the Italian ones. The red tags are scenes from films they liked.




After having created the activities students played each other games and enjoyed a lot!

Here are Norwegian students playing games created by Italian students.


And here Italian students are playing a kahoot game created by Norwegian students. The quiz is about the movie "Animal Farm" based on the book written by George Orwell.
