This CLIL activity was carried out by Science and English teachers (Proff. Denise Natali and Simonetta Galli) at secondary school and English and Technology teacher (Stefania Betti) at primary school as part of the eTwinning project “Yes, We Can!” about raising awareness about climate change and environmental problems. It was planned long before the school closure at the end of February due to Coronavirus outbreak. Despite of that teachers decided to go on with it reorganising the final steps according to Distance Learning.
