"Under the sign of water!" a new etwinning project

Water is an essential element in the life of each human being and it is placed like positive condition for the welfare of the entire community. Life, as we know, it can not exist without water.
75 % of the Earth is covered in water providing an environment for organisms to live in. Water is the most important substance in our evolution and our daily lives.
Without water, life as we know it would not have been possible.
The main aims of this project are: to focus on the importance of the water issue, to become aware of the differences and similarities wtithin different countries of Europe about this problem, to communicate in English, to develop a responsible mature attitude toward water, understand that water inspired works of many artists: painters, musicians, writers, architects of all ages.

The thematic content of the partnership include:
•About us (general informations about the partners: our countries, schools, pupils, teachers)
•Chemistry and Phisycs of water: structure, chemical and physical properties, experiments
•Water and territory: hydrogeological aspects
•Water in literature
•Water in history
•Water in art
•Water and pollution
•Water in economy (industry, agriculture)
•Water in health (hygienic-sanitary use)
•Water and fun (feeding stories, anecdotes, funny photos)

Every month, the pupils should produce something related to water: an experiment (sciences), the description of a river, lake, dam or an activity related to water, pictures, songs about water, etc.
These works will be published on the eTwinning site of the project so that they will be available to all members (http://my.twinspace.etwinning.net/water?l=en).
We work now for building a blog too: http://sign-of-water.blogspot.com
