ATTIVITÀ TRADIZIONALI AUTUNNALI DELLA NOSTRA REGIONE :

IL SIDRO DI MELE

Nella nostra regione, prevalentemente montuosa e collinosa, vi sono molte piante di mele dalle quali si può ricavare il sidro. Anche nel nostro paese, situato su una piccola collina, molte persone in autunno si dedicano a questa attività. Quest’anno abbiamo provato, durante l’ora di Scienze, a produrre il sidro a scuola. Abbiamo documentato le fasi del nostro lavoro in questa presentazione:

 

AUTUMN TRADITIONAL ACTIVITIES IN OUR REGION: THE APPLE CIDER

In our region, mostly mountainous and hilly, there are many apple trees from which fruit you can make cider. Also in our town, situated on a little hill, in autumn many people are engaged in this activity. This year we tried, during our Science lesson, to make the cider at school. we have documented the phases of our work in this presentation:

    It looks like the students had real fun! What was the outcome of the activity? Was it good?

  2. Mario Says:

    HI!
    Our cider? Yes, the smell was delicious, the taste “quite good”, but not for the children,of course!
    Anyway the important was to experience the typical process to make it. It’s a way to conserve traditions! The same was for the oil: the outcome wasn’t so good but the knowledge excellent!

    Right, that’s all that counts. I think they will remember these lessons for long as they were very practical and fun🙂
