Welcome boys and girls! Today we're going to learn how foods can keep our bodies grown strong and healthy.
First let's watch a movie about nutrition.
The Food Pyramid and Food Groups
Learn the Food Pyramid and how to make healthy food choices for a well balanced diet. On the pyramid, foods are sorted into groups. With your team, you will research nutrition websites and discover which food belong in each food group, how many servings of each group you should eat and other things you should do to stay strong and healthy.
Your class is going to make a nutrition web page. First you will draw a picture of the foods in your food group for your web page. Next you will list the nutritional facts you learned from your research. Mrs. Martell will put everyone's work on a website.
