Mr Bean, Mrs Lentil and their tiny peas celebrating the International Year of Pulses 2016

Mr Bean, Mrs Lentil and their tiny peas celebrating the International Year of Pulses 2016 project aims to heighten students awareness of the nutritional benefits of pulses as part of sustainable food production through various activities

COLLABORATIVE PRODUCTIONS

Activities were organized in order to make the 309 students, interact and collaborate to publish common productions. During the 4 seasons growing activity, they have been sowing common varieties of beans, and comparing their growth in the beans diaries they held. Finally the results were published in 9 productions.
According to the IYP2016, the sudents  made aware of the nutritional benefits of pulses, using the 2 sets of nutritional cards, specially created for this eTwinning project and following the 2 steps common work process.
A collaborative work process was set to produce a document on proverbs about pulses in popular culture.
2 collaborative stories have been written in english and in french:
“A fistful of pulses” (travelling around the world with a legume seed) and “Le mystère des haricots rouillés” (a police investigation)
A collaborative production of beans recipes in cuisine
At last, a final photo album Growing pulses in a glimpse of the 38 schools has been published in june 2017.
All the work processes of the productions are detailed in the Twinspace pages of the related activities
