Our journey to the Center of Earth: SCI-FI or Reality?​

“We are of opinion that instead of letting books grow moldy behind an iron grating, far from the vulgar gaze, it is better to let them wear out by being read.”

Children love adventures, they love the adrenaline when they make a new discovery. For that reason, 4º ESO graders -16 years old students- are going to make their own adventure based on Journey to the Center of Earth: would it be possible to make a journey as the characters of the Julio Verne’s novel made?

For this project, we are working in cooperative groups, and they are working on doing research about our earth. In fact, we are trying to demonstrate that the novel is basically impossible from a geological point of view. This objective is not easy, and many times the kids need to face new challenging making a fundamental thesis to cope with each geological subject that the novel includes.
