What does obesity mean?
Oxford School Dictionary Definition - fat, corpulent
Oxford School Dictionary New Edition - very fat, having over eaten
Oxford School Dictionary third edition - fat, corpulent
Oxford Concise English Dictionary - grossly fat or over weight
NZ Oxford School Dictionary - Very fat

Teacher comments: 22.8.07 : You are on the right track. You should start with a brainstorm on all the issues related to obesity in our community. Once you have done this, then you can decide on an area that you want to investigate in terms of our big question on rights and responsibility and human rights. None of your questions above ask about rights or responsibility? Each person in your group should have a turn to make a comment on how you are going, or about something that you have found out. There should be four comments this week and four next week.
Teacher comments: 30.8.07: This is a very interesting investigation. Remember what the purpose is and refer back to the task outline. Your are investigating a community issue so I am still concerned about some of your questions because they need to be specific to obesity in schools in our community. ( This is the area that you have identified as your area of interest) Your answers need to be backed by research. Think about the setting out of your wiki page. Try to use a table for questions, hypothesis and answers. Answers should be based on fact and not your opinion. There should be references to how where you got the information for your answers. I will need to conference with you tomorrow to help you with your questions and just to guide you with your next steps. You also need to look at your reflections, especially Hennie and Sam. At this stage of the year I would expect a little more thought and input. I have also removed some unnecessary sections from your page. Chat to you all tomorrow. Mrs. M
We are going well
We are doing good
I just modified some of the questions a little bit hope it helps.
I changed one of my questions and
added another "ANSWERS" collem that you can explain your
answers better instead of just 2 words.
I have changed one of my question to How is obesity measured in children?
hope it is ok!!
We need to come up with a management plan for our action plan to take
action!!! We should work on this for the next inquiry!
We should call BBK next time we do inquiry!!! We need to get a move on with the
action plan!!!
We are doing well all we need to do is ring up all of the schools and then we can answer the questions and then
we can figure out our action plan.
