Pre-task: the teaching team is invited to review the Itaka-Escolapios boarding school files, in order to link the reflection and adapt the information to the group of students. (Annex 1)


1.We watch the story "For four little corners". (Link

2. We discuss and reflect on the story: What happened to Little Square? did he have a problem? did he have trouble finding a solution? why did Little Square want to go inside the house? was the big house his school?

3. Can all the children in the world, those who live in other countries, go to school? Is it important for them to be able to go to school?


1. We will discuss together how we get to school in the mornings (walking, by scooter, by car) and how long it takes us to get there (if we are far, near, if we get very tired...). What would happen if it took us all morning to get to school? Would we be able to come every day?

2.We look for solutions to the questions above and present pictures of the boarding schools (see annex 2)
