On December 2, 2017, a one-day educational trip took place in mountainous Arcadia (wider area of ancient Gortyna) within the framework of the Physical Education lesson and the Health Education Project “I Say No to Sedentary Life”. 52 students (12-15 years old) participated in outdoor adventure activities . They went through rafting wearing appropriate equipment on the rivers Lousios – Alfios, and then walking through the water, they reached the waterfall of Vrondos. The children were divided into groups and took part in outdoor games requiring agility, balance, perception and teamwork using a compass to find orientation while still solving various puzzles.
The educational goal of the one-day activities was to promote positive attitudes towards physical activity, the deleopment of new motor skills, self-confidence, self-esteem and positive social connection between teenagers, but also the development of respect for the natural environment understanding its vital importance for human well-being.

The purpose of this cross-curricular teaching was for students to connect scenes described in the “Iliad” of Homer with their aesthetic display in museum artifacts. They used the ideological and mythological elements while having exercised their bodies in order to reconstruct the illustrated works of art scenes through an experiential process.
