eTwinning Project of the Month: Europe, So Many Faces!

Europe, So Many Faces

By Ms. Marouska Azzopardi Duca – St. Clare College, San Gwann Primary B

Our class 6.3 of San Gwann Primary B, St. Clare College, took part in an eTwinning Project called “Europe: So Many Faces”. It was a perfect name because it involved 35 European countries and their various traditions.

The project started with an introduction video created by all partners. A number of students in our class had fun going around filming and commenting about the school. The next step was to choose five places that tourists would want to visit in our country.
