Did you know the stork´s wingspan is up to one meter? Did you know there are no storks in the Americas? Why are there myths about storks, such as the carrier of newborn babies? In the past these huge birds spent the summer in Spain and other European countries and wintered in Africa, yet with today's changing climate, many storks have stopped migrating. Why? This fun science unit also deals with storks in the Autonomous Regions, the Spanish equivalent of states or provinces.
A group of friends goes hiking in a Spanish national park near the French border. The text is in the form of diary entries where one of the hikers describes what they see, do and think about. Of course ecology is important! Students then compare national parks in northern Spain with another in southern Spain and learn about the varied geography of the country. What a way to study the comparative and the superlative, contextualized.
