    Top Ten European Tourist Guide Online

    Our intention is to create an online tourist guide for children called 'The Top Ten Tourist Guide'. Six areas of interest have been selected for each partner school to research: 10 things to see in our country 10 places to visit 10 traditional foods to try 10 phrases we need to explain 10 do's and don'ts of our country 10 healthy hobbies/pastimes In researching each of these areas each school will develop greater understanding of their own country's traditions and cultural heritage. Children will develop their understanding and ability to promote their own country and cultural heritage while developing a greater understanding of their European counterparts. Children will have opportunity to collaborate through a vote to define their 'Top Ten' in each category and will work collaboratively to compile an online tourist guide for children. Activities will be incorporated within the existing curriculum and will include literacy, art and design, geography, history and ICT. A ‘touring bird’ will 'fly' to each of the partner schools to sample a taste of daily home life/school life in European countries. Pupils will receive an insight into European life through a scrapbook compiled throughout the bird’s journey. All schools are committed to providing children with the skills required for lifelong learning. We believe that participation in the Comenius project will enhance the children’s overall educational experience whilst affording the staff opportunity to progress in their own professional development.

    The blog represented a useful tool to all European schools to present themselves, further allowed to establish contacts and friendships bonding the countries. It has also been a succesfull container of our joint work, where the research shared by pupils has grown, making visible and accessible the final products to a wider audience and supporting intercultural dialogue, communication and cooperation among different countries at different phases of the project.
