DRAFT PROJECT

Project name
Is my river friendly?
Issue
This project aims to compare different european rivers. It
doesn't matter if they are big or little ones. At the same
time, we'll work about several matters such the quality of
water, the fauna, the flora, the climate, the leisure
activities... I don't want to forget the disabled, so all the
students will be wellcome, even if they have got handicaps.
Though I refer to rivers, in case a school which take part in
the project doesn't have any river, but it has a lake, sea or
something similar, we will compare its aquatic surface.
Involved subjects
As a physical education teacher who enjoys outdoor
activities, the main way to learn something about every
river will be by walking, by cycling or even by kayaking, if
it's possible.
Needless to say that we use the internet and the TICs in
order to find out more details about our rivers. That's the
reason why one of the involved subjects is informatics. The
other ones are, besides English language,
Natural
sciences and Geography.
Ages
The project is dedicated to pupils between 15 and 19 years
old.
Assessment
I'd like to use rubrics in order to evaluate.

Languages
English.
Tools to colaborate with the partners
The main tool will be the Twinspace of eTwinning. Many
advantages can be found in these platform, like chat, mail,
wall and a dairy.
We also can use Skipe once in a blue moon, if it's necessary.

Metodology
Three fases:
1. Introduce the participants. We can use a Padlet in
order to do that. Every member will present himself.
2. Working in mixed groups (groups with students from all
the schools). Every group will be in charge of a
different issue of the river. Subsequently, a video will
be produced by every group, and the product will be
share with the rest of groups.
3. Finally, after a poll, the students will choose the ideal
features in a river, and will made a video with the
mixture of that features.
Students will develop activities suggested in the project,
always with the supervision of several school teachers
(according to the area involved). In spite of all the activities
will be developed in groups, the project will be evaluated
individually.
It is aim that all the groups can take advantage of the rest
of the groups`products to increase and improve their own
product.
