Recycled material to set up a puppet theatre.

Recycled material to set up a puppet theatre.
In this video, made by Giulia and Federica, our students built a puppet theatre with recycled material.
They decided to represent on the stage the myth of Cerere and Proserpina, typically Sicilian, that explains why in Sicily there are six months of good weather.
The characters of the story are Proserpina (daughter of Cerere and Zeus, goddess of Spring), Cerere (goddess of the harvest), Hades (god of the underworld), Hermes (messenger of the gods), Zeus (god of the gods)
This is the myth and the plot of our little video: Proserpina, daughter of Zeus and Cerere, was a beautiful girl. She was picking up flowers and walking around the countryside while Ade, god of hell, saw her and fell in love and kidnapped her, taking her to his kingdom. Cerere and Zeus were worried. Zeus asked Hermes to go down to the hell to find his daughter . When Hermes found Proserpina she was very happy to go back to her family, but explained to Hermes that she had eaten a pomegranate seed thus breaking the rules, as a punishment she had to stay there. So Zeus, the father of all gods, decided that Proserpina could stay with her mother on earth for six months and the remaining six months down in hell with her husband Ade.
This myth explains why in Sicily there is Spring for such a long time!

Fourth transnational teacher´s meeting in Brno (The Czech Republic)

The fourth transnational meeting was held in Brno from 19 th January to 25 th January 2019. The TPM meeting aimed at evaluating the project and its impact on schools and students. The host school  organized the activities in an excellent way, creating a climate of fruitful understanding among all the teachers. We discussed about the products already uploaded on the site and on  Facebook  and about photos to be uploaded to Flickr. Each country received a copy of the calendar built with the photographic contribution of all the participating countries.

Moreover, activities were planned in view of the next mobility in Greece from 5th  to 11th  May 2019, i.e. dramatizations to exemplify physical, chemical and biological phenomena.

Collaboration among the teachers of the partner countries strengthened so future  activities and strategies to be adopted in order to guarantee a positive continuation of the project were highlighted. In particular, all digital tools will continue to be used for constant communication and sharing of initiatives and products.The more and more positive relationship established has put the basis for a good follow up of the project in the next mobility.
