Spring day in Europe. Very good experience by cooperating with other European schools. Greece-Austria-Romania. Project μαθητών του 5ου Δημοτικού σχολείου Ρόδου. Οι μαθητές φωτογράφησαν μνημεία, τοπία αξιοθέατα και κτίρια της Ρόδου. Συγκέντρωσαν υλικό έφτιαξαν την παρουσίαση αυτή και την έδωσαν στα συνεργαζόμενα σχολεία από την Ευρώπη. Αυστρία- Ρουμανία. Το αντίστοιχο έγινε και από τους μαθητές των χωρών αυτών. Το αποτέλεσμα της συνεργασίας ήταν υπέροχο. Το ίδιο πρόγραμμα μπορεί να γίνει σήμερα μέσω του e-twinning. Δείτε και τις παρουσιάσεις των άλλων χωρών παρακάτω.
