Imagine being on a boat with your friend travelling in the sea. You reach a beautiful island called a "Better Place". But a few yards away from the island a storm hits the boat and you must throw in the sea some of the things you have on the boat.
This was a project conducted in our school by Cliff Parry from the British Council. The students of the sixth grade were given some words such as friends, sports, money, school, family, games and were asked to choose which of them they would “throw” in the sea in order to save themselves. After working with their classmates they came to the conclusion that in order to manage something and succeed in, it is necessary to co-operate and help each other.
