Description of the Experience
Problem: “Major cities and regions of the country” is area rich in information - new maps, photos, descriptions, interesting facts; variety of landscapes, cultures and sights. How to help kids to remember so many different information? How to systematize their knowledge and arouse the curiosity of the traveler?
Solving the problem: It is proposed to carry out repetitive lesson entitled "Small traveler tourist information office" using elements of drama. Learning through play integrates students and inconspicuously encourages to deepen their knowledge and to develop their interests.

Self-preparation of students for lesson
The teacher gives a homework a week in advance. The students divided into small groups are to prepare the promotion campaign of a chosen Polish region (eg Pomerania, Masuria, Silesia, Tatra Mountains, Sudetes). Students can design leaflets or posters, their own guides, develop new tourist routes.
They should remember giving such information as:
- Important cities of the region (monuments, tourist attractions, history, legends)
- Natural wealth (fauna, flora, landscape, National Parks)
- Regional cuisine, folk costumes, music.

Delivering the classes
Each group at a separate stand conducts its information office and promotes one region. Students can play the role of both an expert - a guide to their region, as well as of the tourist who visits other offices and asks questions to his/her peers. The works produced by the students during the lesson result in interesting class exhibition.
* This form of classes can also be used for delivering the classes on European countries.
Kids inspired by the classes created their own "Small traveler" notice board, where they happily placed the photographs, maps, tickets, leaflets and postcards, sharing memories of their trips.

Dissemination Seminar in Florence

31 October 2015 The seminar has been held in ITIS “A. Meucci” one of the schools involved within Goerudio project activities. Its main aim was to promote the results of the project toward a broad sample of stakeholders even overcrossing the number of people directly involved in the production of project outcomes. This purpose has been totally achieved especially thanks to the participation of students and teachers coming from different schools or from other classes instead of those ones directly involved within the project activities.
