7. a. Pylos, Greece

Pylos peas are cooking lentils for the parents

An activity for the projects we implement at school. After dealing with the nutritional value of legumes, we decided: what we learned to share with others. Who? How;
With our parents calling us for lunch in our classroom. We made invitations, cooked lentils, prepared the order and the result on the screen.
Through this action we learn language-written menus and invitations, ...-, mathematics-we measured quantities, we matched the preparation of tables, ...-, ICT-we searched recipes on the internet, we wrote the invitations, ...- , We interacted with the environment, created, painted and made a poem about pulses and invested it with music, we practiced in delicate mobility by cleaning the lentils and cutting the materials, .... An action fully integrated into the curriculum.
And of course we have achieved the best results of the disseminetion of project results.
It was the best lunch we've ever had!
