Waterdrop game

After quite a long break, we got together today again. We watched a  few videos recommended by the Spanish team and divided the letters which have arrived from Spain. 15 students got a penfriend from Ferrol.  Our students are expected to hand in their reply letters by Tuesday, so that  we can post them and send to the school in Ferrol. 

We also reminded ourselves that 2 competitions are going on till 11 March - Internet quizes and students can bring their water-photos or logos till March as well. Next Thursday we plan to go for winter picnic and a small walk in a snowy bog. Weather is expected to improve by then as well. (Today it rained and eit is so wet)

We also played waterdrop game. Every student imagined being a waterdrop and started moving from the first location (either lake, river, sea, mountain, cloud, ground, animal or human)  according to picked description  to a new location. So we had journeys from being a waterdrop inside plants and going  into animals  or being ina  cloud and evaporating into rainfall or "travelling" from the toilet.  There was no dead-end because the water is in a cycle. After students had passed at least 10 locations, they presented their journey to the others. no journey was alike. Diana, Hans-Martty and Evita managed to prepare a profound presentation within short time.
