Portuguese and Finnish Students get acquainted talking about water now and in Old Testament times

Alunos Portugueses da Secundária Rainha Dona Leonor receberam alunos Filandeses de parceria etwinning de um outro projecto. O assunto que os levou a comunicar ( em inglês ) para preencher questionário, foi o tema da água nos respectivos quotidianos, tendo realizado de seguida, em aula de inglês conjunta, um trabalho de ilustração de dois textos do Velho Testamento que revelam que a natureza humana não mudou grande coisa. Etwinning Finnish pupils and Portuguese students from Escola Secundária Rainha Dona Leonor met to talk about water in their daily routines and proceeded to a common lesson of English where they were told two short Old Testament texts that they illustrated and wrote subtitles on them. Human nature, after all these years did not improve much.
Here are some photos.

On of these articles was published in a magazine that is widely distributed in the Portuguese Middle and Secondary schools. The article referred to the project's concern to make youngsters aware of the need to carefully manage water and the creativity to associate it with texts of the Bible to illustrate practical issues.

On the other hand I was given the opportunity to write an article for the APPI- Portuguese Association of Teachers of English. The article was called Rock of Ages and pointed out the the relevance of the Bible values and of water in our daily lives. This article was a sequence to my having been a speaker on the project in the previous national conference.
