About the project

This short time project is concerned with a calendar for the year 2019. 
Students from partner schools will create pages of the calendar – each country will create some pages (one page per month). The content of the page should be connected with important days (international or national importance) or special days and holidays. 
The final product of the collaboration will be the calendar full of information and facts that are chosen by children from partner schools. The calendar can be distributed in the schools and can be used as a useful decoration of the classrooms. 
Other activities included in this project will be guessing games, quizzes and games connected with the topic.
