After our training sessions in the West Bank and Gaza i September, and a series of on-line lectures in October and early November, our Palestinian participants are coming to Oslo November 21-25. In one of our sessions I will ask them to carry out an information search on the web, based on questions asked by teachers in Norwegian schools.
I have listed the original questions in Norwegian here. Below I give the English versions. I have introduced a few changes to make it easier to search in English, but left the basic structure unchanged.

- What are the main stages in the life cycle of the (North Atlantic) cod?
