Learning about Hurling

While visiting Galway the Greek teachers got acquainted with Hurling ,an ancient game, still very popular in Ireland and Wales and had the opportunity to watch the Irish students play it and also tried it themselves.
When we came back we presented the game and its history to our sixth grade students. Because special equipment is required it was not possible to actually play the game . However the students looked for information in the Internet, found the rules and saw the photos and videos their teachers had taken.
We were very surprised to see our students motivated to find out more about a sport quite distant from Greek reality and realized that this is also communication and exchange of knowledge and experiences with the children of Ireland .
