Feel the Forest
eTwinning Project 2012/2013
Feel the Forest and keep your school green|
About our project:
Our team of teachers and students have been working collaboratively on the eTwinning Project" Feel the Forest and keep your school green"; we're from Portugal, Bulgaria, Italy, France, Turkey and Poland.
Our students were invited to observe and respect the forest, its plants and animals, to make guided walk tours and to collect useful information about the protected forest areas near the place where they live.
We share good practices among European schools in what concerns the environment and involve our students and the educational community as responsible citizens for a better and greener planet.

Nature calendar 2014
