First graders examine the food pyramid and how healthy food effects the body. They discuss what they ate for breakfast and identify what makes a food healthy. Students analyze the food pyramid, and cut out magazine pictures of food and glue then onto the correct sections of the food pyramid.
Second graders discuss their current knowledge of the Food Pyramid and listen to a read aloud of "The Edible Pyramid: Good Eating Every Day." They complete a food pyramid which the teacher has drawn on the board by adding food in the proper place. They discuss and identify food that belongs to the dairy group.
