Farming around Europe

This project will involve a number of schools from different countries around Europe. Children will research farms and farming in their region and country; and will share their research on the Twinspace with the other schools in the project. We will produce a project book and ebook; and hold a video-conference call. The project will facilitate international peer learning and encourage an greater appreciation of the diversity and similarities amongst countries in Europe.
