Physical Awareness 13-14
Level : From 15 to 17
Key competencies : Cultural expression / Digital / Foreign language / Learning to learn / Maths / science and technology / Social and civic
To increase mastery in a foreign language.
To learn about other European cultures.
To Increase knowledge in Maths (manipulating formulas, analytic geometry, conics) and Physics (Kinematic, Dynamic, Fluids) experimenting the laws and the trajectories of the objects during PE classes.
To improve the ICT skills of pupils.
To learn how to work and cooperate in international groups at a distance.
The partner teachers work together to decide which activities in PE class will be chosen to measure certain laws of Physics and which mathematical calculations would be best suited to analyse this. Or appropriate activities to blend with Biology or Health Science.
The pupils introduce themselves on the TwinSpace using Voki or some other means, and spend some time speaking to each other through eTwinning live videoconference.
The pupils are then divided into groups at school level and each school group is matched with a school group in the partner school.
Tasks will be done by each school group who will come together with their partner group to discuss and exchange findings. Each combined group will be in charge of publishing one part of the project.
The final goal will be preparing an eBook presentation with the collaboration of all the pupils in each group. All the pupils will see all the presentations and will answer to a common test with questions learning many things about the Physics in Sport.
Suggested tasks could be initial ice-breaking activities, CLIL activities on the specific vocabulary, forum discussions of specific topics of fitness or health topic, specific challenges set by one group to another, videoconferences, eBooks summing up the activities done during the meetings, and a common written test.
Pupils can test their knowledge at the end of the project by answering a common test about the project results (a sample test may be found in the TwinSpace of the original project linked from the Links tab).
Through discussion in class and between classes.
This project could be expanded to include a pupil exchange, either funded by Erasmus+ mobility or through school funding.
The pupils could be hosted by their partners at home to reduce costs.
The index of tasks in each exchange could include the following:
1. Practice sport together and collect data (position, time, speed, energy, etc.)
2. Apply Physics and Maths to the data. International groups during exchanges
3. Publish results in some public way
You could also plan a school presentation for parents and other members of the local community, or have a dissemination corner with posters and photographs etc. in each school.
