As al- ways, Ms Sylwia Salej presented a very interesting les- son to encourage the children to discover the fifth wonder in Brodnica . Discovering the fifth wonder of our region the healthiest place in our region The awareness of healthy lifestyle should be formed from the earliest years. We started work on discovering the fifth wonder from the basic question What should we eat to be healthy? What should not be missing at our menus? The students from grade two prepared recipes for salads and preserves, full of vitamins, which can compensate for the lack of fresh fruit and vegetables. Then we created food pyramids and presented them to our partners from Turkey during a videoconference.. Basing on our work, we prepared a brochure with recipes for simple and healthy salads and preserves. 8. 8 Who will the winner be? Knowing that healthy lifestyle must be accompanied by physical activity, we started looking for the healthiest place in Brodnica. One afternoon a group of parents and chil- dren and the coordinator of the project visited a fitness club Seven in Brodnica. Su- pervised by the instructor, we were able to know the details of all the kinds of physical exercises on offer and to try them ourselves. Kind instructors and a generous offer helped us to decide that it is the friendliest place in Brodnica for, both, the older and the younger ones. You can see the whole report from the visit on our project website. We havent had so much fun for a long time. The children liked the activities with their par- ents and the instructor so much that it was difficult to get them out of the club. So, unanimously, the Seven Club was chosen to be the fifth wonder of our region as children and their parents can influence their health there. A sound mind in a sound body. 9. 9 Here you can read some special characteristics for the park. Cyprus Students of classes 3A and 3B were the lucky ones to explore the most healthiest place near our community. Students got excited and gave a lot of ideas for some places that could earn this title. Among the candidate places were some gyms that include weight training and zumba lessons, the municipal swimming pool, boys' favorite football fields and several sport fields like tennis, basketball and so on.
