My Erasmus+ en Romania by Marcos Francisco Romo

      The distance that separated us was great, as well as the desire to travel. We left Badajoz, along with the teachers who have accompanied us in this exchange and our parents, who gladly took us to the Lisbon airport. The plane left at 7:00 p.m. and we arrived in Bucharest at 02:00. Although the trip was long, it was also entertaining. The boys slept with  teacher Monica and Jimena with teacher Montse.
      The next day, in the morning we were visiting Bucharest. I was impressed with their buildings. We ate hamburgers from McDonald's on the train, because we wanted to take advantage of it to see as many things as possible. The journey was also a bit long ...

Learning with the NGO "Entreculturas"

Children and adolescents are protagonists of peace building.

      We carry on working on conflicts resolution within the Erasmus + Project. On May 10th, fouth, fifth and sixth grade  students have participated in the workshop "Children soldier" of the NGO "Entreculturas".
      Thousands of children participate in armed conflicts suffering from abuse, used to commit violent acts, losing the right of education, protection, food, or their development from the game and fun.
      Facing these real situations the children learn the importance of listening  two sides of a conflict and how each person is responsible of peace building.

HiStories across Time - Romania

“Memories of My Childhood”

          This is a auto-biographical novel by the Romanian author Ion Creangă. It depicts, in an original way, the adventures of a 19th century Romanian boy, who lives in the countryside with his family and childhood friends. All this are presented in a detailed and funny way, transporting the children in a colorful world.

“A Visit”

            A sketch by the Romanian author Ion Luca Caragiale, “A Visit”, tells the story of a visit paid to a middle-class family by a family friend. The main character of the story is Ionel ( Johnny), a spoilt kid who makes all kinds of jokes, some of which are rather impolite. This sketch is a funny, humorous story, largely enjoyed by children and adults alike.
”Robin Hood”
    A book for children of all ages, ”Robin Hood” tells the story of a famous outlaw who lived in England during the time of Kris Henry the Second, in Sherwood Forest, near Nottingham. Besides the adventures of Robin and his band of merry men, the book depicts life in the Middle Ages in a fascinating way, offering a comprehensive picture of that time.

“Iliad, Odyssey” for children
        The story here told has inspired people of all civilizations for nearly 3,000 years. No person should be allowed reach adulthood without having experienced some aspects of Greek classical civilization and these action-packed tales of heroism, humanity, weakness, tragedy and joy are a great starting-point. A sampling of the stories of the Iliad, Odyssey and of other Greek myths and heroes can be the start of a lifetime of fascination.

“Savage Stone Age”
     Throughout this book you will read about the timeline of human evolution and the three prehistoric periods of mankind, how Stone Agers lived, the animals they hunted till becoming extinct. We will also learn more about the food they ate, how they cooked it, about their weird beliefs and gruesome burials, about brainy archaeologists, treasure hunters, accidental discoveries, stone circles legends and mysteries and many other curious facts which won’t let you put the book or reading device down.

”World History – From Its Origins Till 2000”
      This is an encyclopedia that presents historical facts worldwide, offering information on different personalities and events. Children can use this book to enrich their knowledge of Pre-History, Ancient times, Middle Ages and Modern era. There are pictures and short texts which can be used to further search for particular details and extra-information.

Reading about Human Ages

Who did the first men look like?
How did the Neanderthal man light up the fire?
Who were Cro Magnons and why did they paint in the caves?
How was a Neolithic village made?
Through a simple language and very beautiful images, this book starts looking for the origins of our species to follow the evolutions of the first men.

This is the chronicle of a normal day of the tribe: the arrival in an already known cave, the lighting of the fire, the stories told by the elders, a magic dance ... In the Ogon cave the shaman paints a horse on the wall and explains to Aua that this animal is not a prey, but its guiding spirit. Women and children collect fruits, herbs and roots. Aua tries to fish with a trident. All await the hunters, who finally, after a few days, return with a large prey: a deer killed with poisoned arrows. The tribe is satisfied with meat and everyone falls asleep happy.

       The true story of humanity's progress from Prehistory to the Second world war reduced to a volume of just over three hundred pages. In this book Gombrich speaks to the reader as an older brother who tells a story to the younger brothers.
       This book is an excellent tool to make students reflect on the history of our planet and discuss in class about historical epochal facts and representative characters of their time.
      100 women are told in these pages and illustrated by 60 illustrators from all over the world.
100 examples of female strength and courage to make known to our students, male and female, to learn important lessons from their biographies and reflect on the role of women throughout history.
