THE FOUR ELEMENTS AND
THEIR EFFECT ON OUR LIVES.
When we started this project, we were not sure about how important for our teaching process it might be. Our school life has undoubtedly changed. We have already done so many different and interesting things - projects and tasks, school excursions, contests and parties,... and there are so many things to do yet. We also have a lot to tell, let's start our Comenius Diary.
