Grade 10 English Project: Taking Care of Myself and of the Planet

Our unit title in English is “Taking Care of Myself and of the Planet” and the Statement of Inquiry is “Physical Health is a Personal Responsibility which also Impacts the Planet. From this unit we learnt about vocabulary related to sport, health and basic nutrition, structure for writing charts and recipes, how to express decision, using connectives, imperative, present simple, present progressive tenses, and procedural texts.

We also learnt how to keep our body healthy, consume healthy food and drink, have a healthy life style and maintain a healthy appearance.

We applied our knowledge to contribute to school programme; Friday Sport and Cooking Lesson. We were divided into 2 groups, one group focused on exercise which is called Zombie Apocalypse and another group is interesting to cook healthy food; Penne Bolognese and Steam Broccoli. We discussed to decide the project, job description, and make action plan.

On Friday, the 12th of October 2018, the first group led Friday Sport by asking all Junior and Senior High School students to play Zombie Apocalypse. The aim of the game is to promote healthy lifestyle for teenagers by exerting in a fun way. How the game works? The zombie runs to tag others. When the others got tagged, they become one of the zombies. The zombies then lock their hands and run together. At the end of the game, there will be one person left standing and he or she will be the winner. The benefits of the game include running and teamwork ability. The calories burn varies depending on the weight and age of the person. Teenager burns 100 calories running a mile in average.

On Tuesday, the 16th of October 2018, the second group cooked Penne Bolognese and Steam Broccoli. They demonstrated how to cook it with grade 11 students who had to pay much attention and asked many questions since they would write a report on that cooking demo. At the end they enjoyed Penne Bolognese and Steam Broccoli together. It’s healthy and delicious. We were glad to do this project. Hopefully next time we could do much better.
