The countries of the world singed by... Yakko!

First attempts to sing the Yakko's song were so nice... but you are far from him!

You have time to try again until the holidays... If you sing the song but you don't match the countries in the map... it is just one point!

And the one who is able to learn the song and the performance (dancing and matching in the map)... has 2 extra points next term! ;)





And this will be the one you will use in your perfomance, so practice at this pace :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FC0hWger9aQ

El “moreno de ojos azules” de La Braña retrata a los europeos de hace 7.000 años

El “hombre de Arintero” prueba que los hombres europeos de hace 7.000 años podían ser morenos con los ojos azules.

A partir de los restos aparecidos en la cueva de La Braña (León), científicos daneses y españoles han elaborado un retrato robot de cómo serían aquellos europeos del mesolítico, los últimos nómadas, que eran cazadores recolectores.

Después de ellos, con el cambio al Neolítico, aparecen los primeros poblados sedentarios y los europeos empiezan a domesticar animales y plantas, cambian de modo de vida.

Podéis visitar los restos de “El hombre de Arintero” en el Museo de León.
