Types of food

a Actualitat/Cultura

In 4th grade, in the subject of the bioethics and communication skills, they are studying the different types of food

Bioethics is the study of the ethical issues emerging from advances in biology and medicine.

The students have used PBL (project-based learning) methodology to learn about different types of crops.

They have been given a story of a couple, Peter and Susan, who have a 4 year old kid. Now they are at the supermarket and they need to buy some potatoes. When they are in front of them, they realise that there are three types of potatoes, with differents prices :

  • Organic ( it cost 3.99$ for 5kg )
  • Genetically modified ( it cost 5.05$ for 5 kg )
  • Regular ( it cost 4.25$ for 5kg )

The question is: What type of potatoes should they buy? 

The students have done research and have created a tutorial with the conclusions.

Here are an example:


( Català ) Sóc l’Anna Bellido, una alumne de 4rt d’ESO del GEM, tinc quinze anys i visc a Mataró. Sóc una noia somiadora, responsable, que li encanta estar amb els amics i lluitar per aconseguir tots els meus repte, tot hi que també sóc una mica desordenada. Una de les coses que més m’agrada és el teatre, les pel·lícules de ciència ficció i les novel·les romàntiques.
