INTRODUCTION TO THE PROJECT TEACHING SEQUENCE (escenario)

Does our body work the same on Earth or in space? Do you know how astronauts sleep or brush their teeth? What is ISS? Do they

need to do sport in space? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FG0fTKAqZ5g

What can you see in the video?

Driving question: How does microgravity affect human life in space?

PERSONAL and EMOTIONAL DEVELOPMENT


Students try to:
- Collaborate in a team work.
- Help others along the tasks.
- Make an effort to participate.
- Try to do the best.

COMMENTS
Every year our school prepares La setmana cultural. This year the issue is lUnivers. This project is included within the general
theme of the whole school.
Students work in heterogeneous groups. Each group works on different parts of the topic. Each member of the group has a role.
At the end of the project groups show their works through the video-sketches they have done.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS
I would like to thank students for 5th grade primary in Escola Joan Salvat Papasseit because they have worked hard. Of course, I
would also like to thank my colleagues for helping me along this project.
