Water dictionary

 Today following students attended the meeting: Signe, Diana, Anu, Evita, Gladis, Liisbet, Johannes, Larsen, Hans-Martty, Kenet, Marten, Sten and Kaarel-Eerik, teachers Meeli, Katre, Raigo and Evelyn were supporting them.


First we watched three different videos. Water is very important and useful, but it can also be dangerous or frightening. We could see it from Storm video, recommended by Spanish project leader Miguel. Then we viewed a  video about Turkey's capital Istanbul, recommended by Turkey's leader Gazi and one about Spanish town Ferrol

Next we became the members of a jury to select the best cloud-photos taken by the youngest students in our school. More about the results in the nearest future.

Hans-Martty, Kenet and Sten rearranged our information board in the hall. We try to add more water-photo printouts  soon.

We started creating water dictionary. In several groups students had a brainstorm and suggested different words which are more or less related to water. Then they tried to define them. We shall continue next Thursday.

Tomorrow we are going on an excursion to Tallinn.
