A healthy mind in a healthy body
Start date: Sep 1, 2014,
End date: Aug 31, 2016
The primary focus of the project titled „Healthy mind in a healthy body” is to promote a healthy lifestyle through proper diet and physical exercises among children. The project aims to shape new healthy behaviours, and develop habits and skills that will help children to take care of their own health. This will be achieved by inspiring pupils to take up pro-health activities, both at school and at home, developing their interests in areas concerned with health protection and improvement, encouraging children to take up new active forms of leisure, such as various sports, and inviting their peers to do them, and by educating children to recognize, avoid and/or counteract health hazards.
The project envisages the following activities: art competitions, thematic online newsletters, P.E. lesson scenarios, online quizzes and crosswords on healthy diet and active leisure, meetings with diet specialists, medical doctors, sportspersons, friends/parents/grandparents leading an active lifestyle, joint preparation of school menus, drawing maps and preparing folders of places with sport facilities and spots in the open air where one can actively spend their free time, educational activities aiming at promoting pro-health actions, helping to recognize health hazards and developing behaviours that could help avoid or counteract them.
Realization of the project involves use of modern ICT for accomplishment of project tasks, promoting and making available project products/outcomes. Participants will have gained new skills in learning and teaching, both for acquiring and/or broadening, but also transfer of knowledge as well as evaluation of the progress made. The project will integrate participants from partner institutions by means of ICT (forums, website, blog, videoconferencing). Participants will have honed their language competence in English and other European languages, computer skills and learning methods. Realization of project tasks will help develop social and civic competence and raise the awareness of the necessity to adopt a healthy lifestyle.
