This story is very simple and it has arepetitive structure to facitilitate the students´comprenhensionas well as to contextualize and to introduce the topics we wantto work in this unit. In this case, we focus our attention both onhealthy food and sports, relating it to the topic “healthy habits”.After the story, we propose several activities to solve using thesmart board to settle down the main structures and vocabulary.Besides these structures, there will be oral activities to achievecommunication. However, we had no time to try them with ourstudents, but we intend to do that very soon, so that they canuse the smart board to improve their English and we hope they´ll enjoy it as well.2.OBJECTIVES:
• Familiarize the students with the smart board.• Introduce healthy habits to the students.• Understand a story they hear, with the help of a visual andtechnical support.• Recognize vocabulary related to sport and healthy andunhealthy food.• Improve their communicative strategies.• Improve the students´oral language.• Learn how to use English properly.• Motivate students with attractive activities using thesmart board.3.The unit in relation with the competences:• COMPETENCE IN LINGÜISTIC COMMUNICATION.Students will learn how to use basic English structuressuch as “I can play tennis and I like it” or “I can eat fruit”or “I can´t eat chocolate”, etc. Moreover, we provide themwith English vocabulary to communicate in relation tohealthy habits such as sports and healthy food. Thisvocabulary is being introduced within a context as it is thecase of the story: “Frodo has changed his habits”. Besidesdoing the smart board activities to settle down thestructures, we propose oral games to developecommunicative strategies.• TICS.

These activities include thestory “Frodo has changed his habits” and other activities tosettle down structures and vocabulary and which are also relatedto the competences and other areas.6.ASSESSMENT.There will be a initial evaluation to check the studentsknowledge of the topics.The evaluation will also be formative through the process ofobservation and summative at the end of the process.At the same time, there will be a self evaluation, in which we willprovide students with a card with a happy and a sad face, so thatthey can say which activities they liked and which they didn´tlike.Due to the lack of space, we had to eliminate a part of the storyand some activities. So, besides the story, the video and ourdidactic proposal, we have only included an example of eachactivity. However, these activities can be modified and amplified.
