Who did the first men look like?
How did the Neanderthal man light up the fire?
Who were Cro Magnons and why did they paint in the caves?
How was a Neolithic village made?
Through a simple language and very beautiful images, this book starts looking for the
origins of our species to follow the evolutions of the first men.


This is the chronicle of a normal day of the tribe: the arrival in an already known cave, the lighting of the fire, the stories told by the elders, a magic dance ... In the Ogon cave the shaman paints a horse on the wall and explains to Aua that this animal is not a prey, but its guiding spirit. Women and children collect fruits, herbs and roots. Aua tries to fish with a trident. All await the hunters, who finally, after a few days, return with a large prey: a deer 
killed with poisoned arrows. The tribe is satisfied with meat and everyone falls asleep happy.

The true story of humanity's progress from Prehistory to the Second world war
reduced to a volume of just over three hundred pages. In this book Gombrich speaks to the
 reader as an older brother who tells a story to the younger brothers. 
This book is an excellent tool to make students reflect on the history of our planet 
and discuss in class about historical epochal facts and representative characters 
of their time.

100 women are told in these pages and illustrated by 60 illustrators from all over the world.
 100 examples of female strength and courage to make known to our students, male and 
female, to learn important lessons from their biographies and reflect on the role of women
 throughout history.

Encuentro Erasmus plus en Badajoz

      El proyecto europeo Erasmus + comenzó el 25 de octubre bajo el título "Writing our History'. Creating our Planet".
      Este primer encuentro tuvo lugar en nuestro colegio, donde los docentes de Porto (Portugal), Tradate (Italia) y Piatra-Neamt (Rumania) fueron recibidos por toda la comunidad educativa. Nuestros estudiantes presentaron canciones típicas de Carnaval vestidos con sus respectivos disfraces y nuestro inspector les dio la bienvenida. Visitaron todas las instalaciones, incluso las aulas donde se desarrollaban las clases.
      Durante el resto de su estancia, les mostramos nuestra ciudad y Mérida (cerca de Badajoz), que es una de las ciudades más importantes del mundo. El alcalde de Badajoz los saludó y pasamos mucho tiempo probando comida típica española y hablando sobre aspectos culturales y educativos de nuestros países.
