THANKSGIVING DAY - HISTORY AND VIDEOS


Hello again dear friends!

This post is about “Thanksgiving day”. Apart from Christmas, Thanksgiving is the most important festivity in the USA. It became a feast in the early days of the American colonies almost four hundred years ago.

In 1620 a boat filled with more than one hundred people sailed across the Atlantic Ocean to settle in the New World. This religious group, called Pilgrim Fathers, had begun to question the beliefs of the Church of England and they wanted to separate from it. Their first winter in the New World was difficult. They had arrived too late to grow many crops, and without fresh food, half the colony died from disease.

The following spring the Iroquois Indians taught them how to grow corn. They also showed how to hunt and fish. In the autumn of 1621, The Pilgrim Father to thank God and the Local Indians had a feast. After the USA became an independent country, Congress declared the fourth Thursday in November” Thanksgiving Day” a national holiday.

Turkey, corn, pumpkins and cranberry sauce are important symbols of this festivity. You can click the pictures and watch the video about this important festivity in the USA. Enjoy!!!

LIFE PROCESSES

Hello again dear friends!

In this post, we will review some basic concepts about the life processes. As you well know, life processes are necessary to maintain life. They are carried out by living things. Just click on the underlined words (the yellow ones) and the videos will be opened.

Nutrition is the process which provides your body with all the nutrients and energy that are necessary for life. It involves four processes: digestion (the main organs are the stomach and the intestines), respiration (the main organs are the lungs), circulation (the main organ is the heart) and excretion (the main organs are the kidneys).

The process of sensitivity is the ability to detect and respond to changes in the environment. It involves the sense organs (eyes, ear, nose, tongue and hands), the nervous system (the brain and the nerves) and the locomotor system (made up of the skeletal system and the muscular system).

The process of reproduction allows us to have offspring (children/babies) similar to ourselves through the sexual reproduction. Male reproductive organs and female reproductive organs are different and they develop during the stage of adolescence. The baby develops and become larger inside the mother’s uterus. This period is called pregnancy and lasts about nine months.

Thanks for visiting. Regards, Christopher.

GROWING HEALTHY

Hello again dear friends:

In this post, I want to show you the TV programme the students in our school have developed. They were TV presenters and special guests for a day. Through these videos we can learn some healthy habits we should have, some sports we should do, and some healthy food we should eat. It deals with the contents we have been working in Applied Knowledge, Natural Science and English. I hope you like them because they did it as professional TV workers and they enjoyed a lot that moment.

Just click the pictures and a new tab will be opened.

See you. Regards, Christopher.
