Automated Gardening Plant - Activity for Kids 1

Tell us the story of your project: 

The purpose of this activity is based on comprehension and observation, using the automated watering plant kids will be connected to different european classes. This activity goal is giving them a common bases to exchange later about environment in english.

The activity can be developed on smartphone as a tool to watch video on youtube or can be performed on video projector in the classroom. (the access to video will be available by QR code (physical graphic link to internet webpage) and children will be able to watch them on purpose).
