In 4ºEPO we have gone to Mercamadrid

Our 4th EPO students have been working on the second unit of enquiry, focused on the transdisciplinary topic “Who we are”, where the students have been able to investigate their second line: “the factors and conditions that favour healthy growth”.

As well as researching in class, we organised an outing to Mercamadrid, where they were able to understand why it is important to introduce proteins into their diet.

The aim of the activity was to get to know how this large market works and in particular to learn about how meat and poultry are transported and preserved. They had the opportunity to see it up close and even to taste some of them. They were also able to see with their own eyes the great variety of proteins that exist, and different ways of introducing them into their diet were explained to them.
