Water is one of the most important things in human life. We would like to make our students conscious of its great importance and aware of dangers caused by lack of water.
We have carried out evaluation of our activities. We assessed the students' know;edge and skills as well as the project its progress and end products. We also evaluated the cooperation in the project among the students and teachers.
We were hiking in a excursion at the end of our course and we could learn Aquatic Life through Erjos Ponds and Monte del Agua. Tenerife. The ponds formed naturally many years ago when the soil was dug out for use elsewhere on the Island. The pits left behind soon filled up and became colonised over the years by water plants such as reeds and birds including Coots (Fulica atra) and Moorhens (Gallinula chloropus).The Erjos ponds now support colonies of both species of frog found on Tenerife - the Iberian Water Frog (Rana perezii ) and the Stripeless Treefrog (Hyla meriodonalis). Several types of dragonflies breed there and many other aquatic insects including Great Diving Beetles (Cybister tripunctatus), Whirligig Beetles (Gyrinus deajanii) and Water Boatmen (Corixa affinis) live in the pools.On the land the Oil Beetle (Meloe tuccius) can be found in spring. Its large females often crawl about on paths and short grass and their larvae are parasites of bees.Buzzards (Buteo buteo) and Kestrels (Falco tinnunculus) often patrol the skies overhead on the lookout for lizards and mice. Herons (Ardea cinerea) hunt around the ponds on the lookout for frogs.Until the autumn of 2008, there were millions of Mosquito Fish (Gambusia holbrooki).

It is important to help Africa with medicines, doctors, means and resources how to obtain clean water to combat waterborne diseases. Have a look at our video about a girl who suffers from Dysentery, because she has drunk contaminated water and dies in Africa, meanwhile, she could be saved in Europe.Dysentery is an inflammation of the intestine causing diarrhea with blood. Other symptoms may include fever, abdominal pain, and rectal tenesmus (a feeling of incomplete defecation). Feeding, rehydration and antibiotic is suministrated as treatment to kill the bacterium Shigella and Salmonella.by Group5

We are working with our English teacher Lourdes and our Polish and German pals: Julia Brzozowska and Kaan "waterborne diseases", especially Typhoid Fever. it's evident that we have the best beaches and water from aquifers,springs... in Canary Islands and rivers in Poland and Germany, but if we pollute it , it will become harmful for our health. We should be careful when we drink contaminated water from a pond, etc. Typhoid Fever is an infection due to Salmonella typhi bacterium,which is caught by Ingestion of water contaminated with feces of an infected person and the symptoms are sustained fever up to 40 °C (104 °F), profuse sweating; diarrhea, delirium. If it lasts four weeks, it can affect your liver and cause your death. People who suffer from Typhoid Fever sometimes develop a rash called "rose spots", small red spots on their abdomen and chest.by Group 3

I am Lourdes González Hdez, an English teacher in training from the University of La Laguna. I am working in the etwining project "Water Means Life", on the topic of Waterborne Diseases, in collaboration with the Spanish, Polish and German teachers and students. We have been looking for information, surveys and polls about the topic. Our students have also been working on the script of the final videos, practising dialogues, role-plays, interviewing their families, etc. in order to create original content for the final videos. In these videos, our students and their European partners are going to present a series of waterborne diseases, including a brief exposition of the diseases (definition, diagnosis and treatment) and a dialogue between a doctor and a patient. They have contextualized their works in the water spaces of our countries (ponds, dams, rivers, swimming pools, ravines...), hospitals and health centres to imitate real-life situations. - Posted by lourdes gonzalez hernandez, 18.05.2016
Great tips for typhus we certainly come in handy when you have a drink contaminated water. - Posted by Wiktoria Waniak, 22.05.2016
One important point is the influence of old sewage pipes and water tubes and diseases caused by bacteria. - Posted by Uwe Bugdoll, 26.05.2016
