    Most of the activities can take place in mixed/international groups.

    1. Everyday healthy habits: students made interactive posters and/or mindmaps where they express what they have already known about every day’s healthy habits. All the participants take an online survey. The posters of the participating schools and the survey results are shared and discussed on the Twinspace.
    Suggested technologies: Glogster, SpicyNodes, Google Forms
    2. Healthy recipes: the participants create a Healthy Recipe Book with healthy dishes popular in their countries. They also make interviews with school chefs. The participants prepare a healthy meal with a recipe from a partner school.
    3. Healthy internet use: the students brainstorm on the safe use of internet. They visualize some Internet threats by drawing pictures.
    4. The results of the investigations of the students are presented in digital e-books.
