Health and Social Education
PE: Track and Field
This project connects to Health and Social Education because it involves improving our health through organization and challenge. It also connects to Health and Social Education because it shows what different types of exercises categorizes in what elements of exercising. When doing this project, it was pretty difficult because I started out knowing nothing about the exercises. I never threw a javelin, neither do I know that it was hard. I realized that the way to motivate myself is through competion, trying to beat other people’s records by working harder. I keep a record of how I am doing for each exercise, showing that I’m a little better at track exercises that field exercises. I chose this project because it clearly shows how much it connects to Health, and how I knew how to motivate myself. I also chose this project because I might have to do it next year, meaning that I can now not only compete with others, but also myself.
Science: Modern Food Production
This connects to Health and Social Education, particularly because the topic is about whether modern food affects our health, how some modern food can damage your health. This also connects to Health and Social Education because it also affects the society, for example, fair trade, which is a method used by companies like Starbucks to favor the farmers. In this project, I was doing modern milk production from cows. I wrote lyrics adapted from the musical piece, “Orphee Aux Enfer”. The lyrics are made to talk about the modern milk production, how it works and whether it is good or not. I compiled in a video with pictures drawn on Inkscape. I chose this project because it was one of those songs that I created to do my project (of course, I did it without telling anyone). I also chose this because it best connects to both the health of the consumer and the society of the producers.
