Comenius Pre-Trilateral Meeting Work at school

Since January, our Comenius students have been working via the internet on the Timeline of the European history. Our History teacher, Nerea Acebo, previously gave them an introduction to this period of our recent history. They have been researching on historical and cultural backgrounds  of the EU from World War II to nowadays by decades.
Finally, they have also refreshed the Comenius Corner, prepared some questions for the quizz on European history and rehearsed the song to be sung altogether in the Multilateral Meeting in Garbsen: "Welcome home, to Europe", which we expect to sing altogether with the other participating countries.
