We are going to learn about another topic of Science, from this moment to the end of the school year we are going to focus our lesson on the HISTORY OF SPAIN. To learn history is very important because this will be the way you will understand most of the things that are taking place now.

LET'S HAVE A LOOK TO THESE PHOTOS AND ANSWER THE QUESTIONS:
