Evidence: My presentation outline

A. Find a topic of personal interest. Imagine you are going to present that topic
orally to your teacher and classmates at school. For this part of the evidence
you need to carry out exhaustive research in order to be able to present all the
necessary information related to your selected topic. Report the most important
aspects of your research through a brainstorm of the ideas and concepts that
you think will be relevant to the presentation.



At present we will speak of a specific plant class, which has

multiple benefits for the organism; This type of plant does not
originate everywhere, it tends to believe in zones according to its
evolutionary process.

Turmeric long, medicinal plant with a number of benefits for adults

and young people, acts according to their need and can be found in
different presentations.

B. Now, structure your presentation using the Signpost language learnt during this
learning activity. Present your outline through presentation cards. Use as many
cards as you need.

Remember: Each presentation card should include a heading,

a phrase at the bottom, a number and it should be organized
by numbering and bulleting.

STRUCTURE: Next, we will have several sections on the exposed subject.

1. Origin.
2. Definition.
3. Climate and Collection.
4. Importers and Exporters.
5. Products.

The following will show the activities of exposing the product


Origin: This research based plant originated in western India and its first use dates
back to 2500 years.

The word turmeric comes from the Arabic kourkoum (saffron), since it was believed to
be a saffron variety.

Now let's move on to the definition of this plant



Definition: Turmeric is a herbaceous plant, with perennial leaves that has

subterranean rhizomes that are used after the harvest as seasoning, tincture and
medicinal preparations. It can reach up to one meter in height when it has reached its
full development. It has flowers of different colors grouped in basal spikes. The
rhizomes may have a thickness of five to eight centimeters; With a yellowish color. In
Agroshopping they can be obtained fresh for their integral use.

We continue with aspects of interest 3



Climate and Harvesting: The cultivation in our environment is still very limited, but it
adapts very well because it is a kind of subtropical and tropical climate. Keep in mind
that it can not withstand frost.

This is why it is planted at the end of the cold season on loose, fertile soils and
fertilizers, to allow the good development of the rhizomes that are the ones that are
marketed. It is not suitable for compacted, flooded or low drainage soils where water
can be collected

The harvest is done at 10 months or earlier, according to the development of the

rhizomes, which coincides with the fall of the leaves at the beginning of the cold
periods. Harvesting must be done with great care to minimize the commercial product
that rhizomes are.

After the above, here shows us the countries most welcome


Importers: The largest importers of turmeric are

1. Japan
2. Sri Lanka
3. Iran
4. The countries of North Africa
