In the second year of our Comenius / eTwinning project the students of the 5th grade have dealt with traffic and air pollution. This year our project was integrated with the environmental projects of KPE Argyroupolis. In the beginning we read the story The dirty village by Sophia Zarampouka, in which the Mayor and the inhabitants of a village are trying to find ways to clean the facades of their houses which

have been black because of air pollution. After that, the students watched a video about right traffic behaviour, studied the road signs and painted them. Then, they watched Power Point presentations and videos about the causes of air pollution , the effects and discussed about what we can do to find solutions to the problem. They were also informed by specialists

about the problem and finally presented it in their own ways. They made leaflets, painted T-shirts with environmental slogans, made a PPT, wrote a short story, quizzes and comics. In this e journal you can see all the work they have done and we hope you will enjoy it.

Letter from the students of class 5


Hello everyone, How are you? We would like to tell you that were proud of our class because weve actively participated in the Comenius / eTwinning/KPE environmental project Go green, go clean, act now!. Let us tell you a few things about it. This year we worked on traffic and air pollution. We learned about road safety rules and painted road signs. We read stories, watched videos and Power Point presentations and discussed about the problems that air pollution causes and the ways to deal with them. We made leaflets, a newspaper, painted T-shirts with environmental slogans, made a PPT, wrote a short story, quizzes and comics. Finally, specialists visited our school and told us more things about atmospheric pollution. So, visit our project blog, blogs.sch.gr/8dimnsmyrn/, to learn more about our work. Keep in touch. Love, The students of class 5.
