Main ideas

( Draft by the presentations )

Geography

Our state is in the middle o the ocean, very far from other continents. It’s sourounded by water. We can’t leave it, and others can’t come there. There is a small hill int he middle, and there is a small river to get freshwater. We have a small village, where we live. There are some bulidings, like sumoermarket, cinema, post office and otehr bulidings, like these. But there isn’t any school, just a playground where we can play and get new experireces about life.
The climate is very warm, so we can swim int he lake, and we can go to the beach every day. There are no seasons, only summer. Sometimes it rains, but ususally it’s sunny.
There are some trees to get some shadow and there are some nice animals, too. There are some dogs, cats, and all the animals around the houses. There aren’t wild animals, like tigers, lions or snakes.

Questions asked in the skype sessions to discuss:
How will you learn new things if you don't have schools?
Are there animals in the waters?
How will you pay for your food?
Who were there before you?

Political life

This state has got a king. He makes the rules. But all the other people have got the right to change the rule the king created.
There is net on this island. We use our mobile phone or our laptops to communicate. We have a group ont he net.
We don’t have schools. We live with our parents and we learn from them. We do what hey do and we learn what we have to do as an adult. No schools, no classrooms, no lessons, no marks. Just experiences and games to play.

Questions asked in the skype sessions to discuss
Do you have army there?
Who is the king, Why is he the king?
Only adults work there? What do the cildren do?


History:

Once we wanted to go on a holiday. We discovered this palce to live. It was nice and lovely. We went into the village, and we stayed there for some days. Later it was so nice, that we didn’t want to go home.
It is a peacfull island. There is no war, no revolution as we have got everything we need for our life

It you want to have a perfect vacation, come to our islaned. There is always beautiful weather, we can go to the beach every day, we don’t have to learn, we can get everything on net what we want.
Our king is nice and lovely. He live int he palace int he middle of the village.
We all have small houses. There are small animals in our gardens. W eget our food on a ship visiting this island every week.
If you want to relax, come and visit us here.

Questions asked in the skype sessions to discuss
How do you know there are no other people there?

Economy

In this island we live from tourism. We get our money from tourist. They can take some beautiful photos, so they pay for the beautiful land, too.
We get our food and all the other things from a ship visiting us.
We don't have any natural things to sell.
We import food, clothes, furniture, phone, laptops, TV.
The life standard is very high. We are rich, we have all the things we want to have for our life.
In our free time we swim, we play, we watch films, we chat...etc.

Culture

We celebrate Christmas ( we get presents) and Easter . We celebrate our birthdays, and namedays ( Like in Hungary)
As we don't have schools, and we don't have long history, we don't celebrate in our schools.
We like music. Mainly modern music, pop, rock, rap music. We play the guitar, drum , flute .
We like sport. We play footbal, soccer, bascetball, but we don't do any exercises.
