Our schools have been chosen to be the reporters of the new magazine “Science in stories for kids” whose objective is to investigate if there is some science in traditional fairy tales and stories. The teams should know each other well and also the schools and the countries.
In international teams, we have to study the fairy tale “The three little pigs”. On the one hand, we do linguistic work about reading comprehension and technical aspects of the book such as the period when it was written and who wrote it. On the other hand, we do scientific work proposing scientific questions and trying to solve them by research and experimental activities, focusing on construction materials, building scale models of an ecological house and other pupils' interests.
As a final product we have to edit a magazine, pupils must agree about the contents of the magazine, deciding which of the linguistic and scientific activities will be published in it.
