At the KGS Kirchweyhe, we’re currently working with Year-7-students on the Comenius project “What you eat is what you are”. In year 7, the pupils have to chose between different courses our school offers and 32 students opted for the Comenius project.

The course is divided into two parts: On the one hand the pupils work (together with Karin Böhm) on theoretical aspects of eating habits in different European countries, on the other hand they carry out practical work in the school kitchen with Karen Wohlers.

During the first months, the theoretical part of the course consisted of getting familiar with those countries that are part of the European Union: The students formed research teams and each group worked on a different country. After several lessons, hours of internet-research as well as library visits, they were able to present important facts (e.g. number of inhabitants, languages, capital, important cities and sights, landscape and “typical” food) of “their” country. Some groups had even tried some recipes at home and we were able to taste real Polish “Piroggi” as well as French bread and cheese.

After that we started to look closer into our own eating habits: The students had to fill in the “Food Questionnaire” (made by our Portugese partners) themselves and then go round our school and ask as many pupils as possible to do the same. In the end they found 334 pupils who were willing to answer the questions – it took us several lessons to evaluate all these papers and we got some amazing and interesting results.

At the moment the students are working on the design of their “own” restaurant: They will have to present a detailed drawing or model of the restaurant and create a menu.

Practical work in the school kitchen started with learning the basics of food technology, hygiene and working in a kitchen including the use of technical equipement like stove and oven. In addidition, basic knowledge of working techniques and the dealing with food was practised.

At the moment, the students are preparing a “typical German meal”: Firstly they had to find recipes for different starters, main courses and desserts, then they are preparing the food (and of course taking pictures which will be published on the Comenius homepage). In the end they will have to chose the best meal which will be presented on the Comenius homepage and later be used as part of our planned “Recipe Book For Europe”.
