Project pupils work on Christmas activities with a focus on the environment and Climate Change! Apart from traditional Christmas craftwork displayed on the current TwinSpace page, the project children also associate recycling with the Christmas season, they get together online to design & print Christmas ornaments (3D design process, 3D print process), they use recycled filament from old refrigerators. and they come up with a wonderful collection of 3D printed designs for Christmas.

Christmas ornaments: 3D printing
Project pupils draw/design ornaments for the Christmas tree such as a little bell, a tiny Christmas tree, a gift and upload their design in the TwinSpace or an art platform (tinkercard) Dimitris, the Art teacher uses for 3D printing. Greek pupils can print out our project partners' designs.
To design the ornaments project children can attend an online tutorial with Dimitris on dates and at times convenient for most partners (fill in the Teachers Contact info) so that we can make the necessary arrangements to meet you online.
Project partners sing "Christmas Tree" in their native language and in English (project language). "Christmas Tree" (in terms of melody) exists in most European languages. Here is the Greek version. The final product will be an Ourboox collection of videos of the project children singing the song in their native language. We'll watch the videos just before the Christmas break. The activity aims at familiarizing children with the sound of partners' languages and requires them to sing about trees that play a vital role in addressing climate change.
