Our Healthy P.I.C.N.I.C.-project activities

 

 

 

Healthy P.I.C.N.I.C. consists of several components:

Healthy

Positive

Intercultural(ly) Competent

Noble

Innovative

Children

 

All partners have agreed to work on specific Healthy P.I.C.N.I.C.-activities to enforce these components within their schools. These activities are presented below.


Within the project the partners also develop individual activities based on these components and exchange their ideas, materials and experiences with the partner schools. You can find some of these activities in the country-related sections of this TwinSpace.


 

Logo competition


 

In September 2014 we started to find a logo for our Healthy P.I.C.N.I.C.-project. Hundreds of pupils participated in the competition and designed suitable logos.


In October the winner was announced! Congratulations to Croatia, the logo is great!

 

 

Culture Box

 

 

To get to know the countries of all partners, every school has created a Culture Box. It´s a box with 10 items characteristic of the country, a description of the items is included. In the box there`s also a mystery object - that`s a quiz for the pupils, they have to find out what this object is all about and why it`s characteristic of the country.


These boxes are sent to all partner schools in a row (so  each school receives a new Culture Box every two months). The pupils work with the boxes and find out a lot about the different countries and their cultures. As a result, posters of all countries are made, including information on the country.


The Culture Boxes are a very exciting activity for the pupils :)

 

 

Old Games Booklet

 

All partnerschools collected traditional old games in their countries. An Old Games Booklet is now ready :)

 

 

Happy Book

 


Another important activity within our project is the Happy Book. For a healthy lifestyle also self-esteem and good relationships are important. Happy Book is supposed to support that.


In the Healthy P.I.C.N.I.C.-classrooms Happy Book shall be established. That can be free space at a wall, a door.  Every pupils than gets her/his personal space (maybe a sheet of paper with names, pictures, drawings on it, or little "mail boxes"). All classmates are invited to write positive comments to other pupils or do nice drawings.


In several classrooms the Happy Book-activity already takes place, maybe you find some inspiration looking at the pictures below!

 

 

Healthy P.I.C.N.I.C. Cookbook

 

 

Food is very important for a healthy lifestyle. It´s also part of our culture as there are many different traditional dishes in every country. Therefore all partner schools are currently working on a recipe book.

 

The children are cooking healthy, traditional dishes from their countries - the recipes and photos of the cooking will then be published in a recipe book in summer 2015.

 

 

 
 
 

Public relations

 

 

All Healthy P.I.C.N.I.C. schools are constantly promoting the project and its goals. Some newspapers and TV channels already published articles and videos!
