We did a project in Ms. Bleahene’s class with an Italian school (LASTRA SCUOLA) on the Celts. We told them about the warriors, clothes, houses (crannòg), food, farming, religion and metal work. We talked to them on Skype. We dressed up one of the days for the Skype video call. Some people in our class made a crannòg model. We had two practices with the Italian school. We sent them photos of our crannòg model as we were talking to them. Two boys brought in jewellery to show them. The Italians asked us questions about the Celts. The Skype meeting was recorded in Italy by an Irish company called Agtel.
