Our project is devoted to storks. The students will have the chance to look for, talk about, share, compare and present information on the life and preservation of those fascinating birds. While working on the project we will explore the impact of human activity on storks’ life and highlight things which might pose a danger to them. In the beginning our students will present themselves, their class, town and country (e-mails, chats, forum, videoconferences, glogs and PowerPoint presentations). Then they will collect and exchange interesting facts about storks (information on life, proverbs, legends, riddles, poems) and finally they will put the information into practice preparing a book of Maths problems connected with storks and their life, a film A YEAR IN THE LIFE OF A STORK (the use of Windows Movie Maker), create a movie using a special tool for making animated stories (Xtranormal) , interviews with storks from other countries, “diamante poems”, a calendar with drawings or pictures of storks in different seasons, a Maths/Science quiz testing the knowledge of storks (the use of Studiyo). The project including a wide range of motivating activities will provide a non-artificial context for interaction and communication, allowing pupils to form friendships with foreign peers, boost their vocabulary and communication skills. What is more, it will help to widen their knowledge of new technologies, Science and Maths as well as increase their self-confidence.
