Hand in hand
Hand in hand

With the help of this project we will try to connect countries and generations. Hand in hand with the children from the other countries and with the aid of the parents and grandparents we want to overcome gaps between generations and cultures. During the course of this we want to improve the creativity of our pupils. At the beginning there will be a logo competition in every participating school/ country. At the first project meeting each country will bring their best ideas. There we will finally choose the best project logo. In the first year we want to put our emphasis on art, literacy and craft. Every other month we will create something which will be uploaded onto the project´s twin space site. With the help of the older generation within our school communities the children want to create the following: make and write Christmas cards, Christmas "Generation workshops" and traditions sent via skype to another country, story telling, exchange stories via mail.... All these activities are being done parallel in each country, exchanged and copied or tried out. The final activity will be an exhibition at school or in another public building to which we will invite the people of our communities. In the second year we want to put our emphasis on drama, dance, music and fashion. Again the older generation will be involved: exchange traditional dances or games, skype sessions with Christmas carols or songs, upload of our twin space site, create a fashion show... The final activity this time shall be a drama production or a show in which all our works of the project "Hand in hand" will be shown and explained. An evaluation of the project will take place at every project meeting.
