Green Kids - eTwinning project

childrenGreen optAs we approach the end of the school year, our eTwinning projects are drawing to a close too, particularly as many schools across Europe have already broken up for the summer!

At Christmas we reported that we had created and exchanged Christmas cards with schools involved in the Green Kids project (as well as others as part of a Christmas card project) However, the main thrust of the project was around safeguarding our environment so we really should report on what we're been doing in collaboration with schools in Spain, Italy, Turkey, Serbia, France and Greece. 

The project:

Green Kid´s a super hero who tries to save the Earth. He´ll teach children how to be Green Kids. 

The aims of the project are:
1. To create awareness about environmental issues and actions that can be taken for its protection.
2. To improve digital and communicative skills.
3. To promote creativity.

During the project schools firstly designed and voted on a Green Kid logo. then they considered an aspect of the environment each month, creating a collaborative storybook on each topic including trees, endangered species, pollution and the problem of plastic. Each school wrote their own story and they were all collated in one online storybook via Storyjumper. Alongside this, pupils from each school found out about the topics and shared their ideas on the Twinspace. You can see it here. We also thought about our role in the future of our world and predicted what would happen if we take care of it.

All the work that we've done at Whitehouse Common on each of the themes (and others!) has been uploaded to the Padlet you can view by clicking here, or by reading the QR code below with a mobile device. I'm sure you'll agree that the children of WCPS know plenty about their role in our world and that the future is safe in their hands!
