    Our Tale Heros Are Meeting in Europe

    8 project partner countries prepared a project on the theme of national tale heroes and ecology under the title of "Our Tale Heroes Are Meeting In Europe." In the first session of the project,each partner country presented its own national tale with its tale hero to the other countries and so indirectly also presented its culture and traditions.So, everyone saw the differences and similarities among countries in terms of culture,tradition..etc.In the second session, each partner created a new tale, including national tale heroes of all participating countries, on the subject of environmental protection. We wrote a book in which all the tale heroes had to achieve some environmental heroic action. To do this, all the participating countries wrote a chapter which mentioned different aspects of protecting the environment.Some dealt with saving water,some of us mentioned the importance of saving energy,some emphasized reducing,reusing and recycling ,some struggled against air pollution and etc.. So,we combined all the chapters in one book. Finally,we called that book"eco book". We chose tales to be the starting point of our project because we believe that tales have the power to spread their message all over the world and can be a strong motivating factor for activities in real life. By implementing ecology in our tales we wanted to make children conscious about environment and we wanted to make them find solutions to the environmental problems as well. Students had a chance of expressing their imagination and use their writing, art, drama, internet, foreign language, photographs, communication... skills. And we believed that by being a part of this project , the participants would not just have a stronger sense of ecological awareness, but also would learn to value their own culture and respect other cultures. We realized that we reached what we aimed generally and specifically in the end .
