Two primary classes work together on turning a chosen fairytale into a PowerPoint presentation. The PowerPoint presentation contains scanned pupils‘ pictures and a soundtrack in both languages. The final presentation is then published on the Internet. To make the experience more real, pupils also produce fairytale-related objects, present the fairytale on stage and organise an exhibition about the project.
Two classes from two different countries agree on a common fairytale;
In each class, the children read and discuss the chosen fairytale in their mother tongue; The fairytale is divided into two parts and each class illustrates only one part of the fairytale;
The pupils in each class establish the scenes to be illustrated and divide the work; Pupils use various techniques to design/draw the scenes.
Exchanging information and learning from each other:
The pictures are photographed and scanned. Then, the classes exchange and print them. They organise an exhibition in their schools;
The digital pictures made by pupils in both classes are put together in a PowerPoint presentation; Each class creates an audio track for the PowerPoint presentation version of the fairytale in their mother tongue;
Both classes listen to the fairytale in their partners' language and compare the two languages.
The final PowerPoint presentation is published on the Internet (for example, on school websites or in the public “TwinSpace”)
The project outcomes may be exhibited and presented to the local community; Every child gets a CD with the fairytale and pictures from the project.
