The activities of the project that we develop, overlap the information we gained at the discipline Geography in X grade as same as for the XI grade. In the X grade we studied tourism and many of the touristic attractions and then we identified our local touristic locations.In the XI on the Environmental Protection theme we learned that people conserved the inviroment forming natural reserves. In time we found out that our city itself holds a few natural reserves itself. Our project framed itself quite well despite the school hours we had to endure, it was worth it.
