SPRING DAY IN EUROPE
got the fax from the Ministry of Education two months ago.
It was about a project called Spring Day in Europe. We came
together in the classroom and discussed how we can prepare a
project like that. What materials could we use in the
project? We wrote down some questions to find their answers.
We searched the Spring Day in Europe website. and we found
nice things to work on and we saw hundreds of schools from
Turkey and all over the world. We thought we should choose
both exciting subjects to be different from them and some
subjects that are very important for Turkey. So we chose
these three subjects below;
* Freedom in Education
* Equality Between Women and Men
* Freedom at Art
These subjects seemed so importan to us because in the past
people lived in very bad conditions and many of them weren't
happy with their life sytles. Time past, now people live as
they want. So there is a big difference between those two
life styles. The quality of our lives is important because
it makes people live happily. So my friends Fikret, Ege and
Nazlı wanted to work on these subjects. We read articles and
we talked to our teachers Seda Elmas, canan Közer and Marius
In class, we had brain storming with other friends so we had
new ideas about our projects. As we were working, our art
teacher and 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th grader were working on
their puppets! They really prepared nice puppets and they
sang songs with the puppets and read fairy tales with the
puppets. They really had very enjoyable time. Their arts and
craft teacher Marius Dahl was very pleased with the result
of this activity.
They gave us a site to use our photos and articlees there.
We wrote about the things whe had done in the Spring Day.
They really liked our project. They sent us an e-mail to say
that they were very impressed by the quality of our project.
Then the vice president of European commission wrote a thank
you letter. They promised us to send a certificate. We were
happy that we came together and worked hard but as a result
of it they liked our project very much. We are proud of
