Part I


Be active, be healty , be happy. A life-long quality attitude towards life.


We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them. – Einstein

For children and young people, physical activity includes play, games, sports, dance, physical education, or planned exercise, in the context of family, school, and community activities. Physical activity  should not be mistaken with sports.. Regular physical activity includes participation in moderate and vigorous physical activities and muscle-strengthening activities.

Personal, social, economic, and environmental factors, all play a role in physical activity levels among youth.

The health benefits of physical activity are now well known. As little as 30 minutes of physical activity on most days of the week promotes better health and prevents illness. For the most part, however, studenst and teenagers  do not engage in sufficient physical activity to enjoy the health benefits.

Schools play a very important role in helping students develop healthy habits and behaviors through physical activities and nutrition programs.

  • Physical activities. Create physical activities guideline.
  • Nutrition, Healthy weight, Obesity and Anorexia .Create nutrition guideline

Objectives of our PE period

After this  period students will be able to:

  1. Summarize expected benefits of Physical activities and healthy nutrition.
  2. Identify ways to overcome barriers to healthy eating and physical activity.
  3. Set a specific, realistic personal health goal according their physical activities and healthy nutrition.
  4. Increase their physical activities by the end of the school year. Develop their nutrition habits. Develop theirs family attitude towards a new healthy life style.

Our goals

  1. Develop the 4Cs skills of 21st century education: critical thinking, communication, collaboration and creativity .Students have to answer in questions which develop 4Cs like:
  • What is the purpose of our research??
  • What are we trying to accomplish?
  • What issues or problems are raised?
  • What data, what experiences, what evidence are given?
  • What do we already know about obecity and anorexia in teenagers
  • What are the implications of an unhealthy life-style?
  • Do you agree or disagree with the statement that there is no connection between weight lose and physical activity and that a diet is enought?  What evidence is there to support your answer?
  1. Develop students’ and teachers’ ICT skills and level of English language.
  1. Develop the knowledge, skills, and confidence to be physically active for a lifetime.
  1. Create opportunities for students to become involved in physical activities.
  2. Enhance opportunities for students to participate in daily physical activities.
  3. Physical activity and calorie balance.
  1. Increase awareness and knowledge about healthy eating.
  2. Increase awareness of the costs – personal and financial, related diseases, absenteeism and the socioeconomic and personal factors associated with overweight and obesity.

As a final outcome, we will create a manual, an e-book, where we will present the results of all of our activities. This e-book is going to help our school community to adopt a life-long  healthy life style.

ACTIVITY 1.  Introduction and Chapter 1 (State strategies).

Each country writes a document where defines the Physical Activity,  the benefits of Physical activities and give us information about the strategies of their country about physical education  and physical activities.

For example: Whats the role of PE at school. What about the curriculum according PE and what the school does for promoting a life –long engagement to physical activities and healthy nutrition.

Gathering all the information we can compare the strategies, find pros and cos and write our common strategy which we can suggest it in our city council

ACTIVITY 2: Chapter 2 and Chapter 3.

GOAL: Collaboration, personal development.  Dissemination using social media, facebook and twitter.

a)≠52goals challenges in physical activities. Each team presents 9 different physical activities. 2-3 physical activities according the season. Try to read the other’s posts for not having double entrances.  We write our suggestions in padlet in etwinning platform and also in our public  facebook group “The 52 physical activities Challenge


b)We calculate the BMI ( body mass index) of our school’s students’. Can we write a report about the BMI and nutritious habits of our classmates?

If every student record 15 entrances, we will have a large number of participants and our results will be more official. What a challenge!

We compare the BMI of all countries.

Important note: BMI compares your weight to your height, and is calculated by dividing your weight in kilograms by your height in metres squared. It gives you an idea of whether you’re underweight, a healthy weight, overweight, or obese for your heightSpeak to your doctor, an Accredited Practising Dietitian or a health practitioner about your weight.This calculator shouldn’t be used for pregnant women or children.(https://heartfoundation.org.au/your-heart/know-your-risks/healthy-weight/bmi-calculator)

The type we can use to calculate the BMI is BMI= weight/ (height)²

Example BMI=82(kgr)/165cm²=30,1 which means obecity

We use excel diagrams for presenting the results.

Don’t forget to record the gender and the age of the participants!

BMI Categories:
Normal weight= 18.5–24.9
Overweight = 25–29.9
Obesity = BMI of 30 or greater

Objectives of our PE AND ART  period


Both art and sports are such important pieces of our culture and history.

The concept and portrayal of sport and the athlete in art has been an evolving phenomenon in the art world for as long as their  has been art.

There are several sports where success is determined by the application of aesthetic criteria to performance. For example Gymnastics, Surf, Diving, etc. Sport actions have aesthetic value, just like Dance, just like a Painting, just like Cinema.

In our project we will study art through dance and Olympic Games.

The perfect movement of a dancer, the excellent movement of an athlete…what can be than art?
