BBC articles

Dear kids,

as I told you during the lessons, you can find here all the articles that I’ve selected from the BBC lately . You can choose to read them, read and summarize them (according to the summary rules we have given at school), write some thoughts about them or deepen some interesting issues inspired by them. You decide.

Never stop getting informed!
