Students discover through research on the internet the importance of daily water intake, the origin of the rule eight glasses of water a day, the validity in the rule, and the effect water has on their health.
Do you know how much water you have had in the last 24 hours? Do you know how much your body needs? In this hands-on activity, your class members will estimate how much water our bodies lose each day by filling and emptying one-liter containers of water. Young learners will then explore by what processes water is eliminated from the body, ways to replace this water, and how much water healthy humans need overall. 
Young scholars examine water, its function and how much you should consume.  In this water lesson students study water and why it is important, how much you should drink and what its functions are in your body. 
Learners construct a model of the hydrologic cycle, and observe that water is an element of a cycle in the natural environment. They explain how the hydrologic cycle works and why it is important, and compare the hydrologic cycle to other cycles found in nature. This is one of the most thoroughly thought-through, one-period lesson plans I've ever come across!
Students explain the important role of water in the body. In this adult health lesson, students examine foods with high water content. They share ways to get the recommended amount of water per day.
Students develop an understanding of the role water has in the body and the importance of getting enough water each day. Through the lesson, students recognize the risks and signs of dehydration. Also, they identify foods with high water content and practical ways to add water to their daily routines.
Students explore the characteristics of water. In this water exploration lesson, students participate in various learning centers to inquire how water drains and how to increase the flow of water. Students use estimation and measurement in each of these stations.
Students evaluate healthy food intake. In this food intake lesson, students examine healthy food recommendations for each food group. Students analyze food labels and determine appropriate serving size information.  After constructing a sample plate of food, students write a paragraph as an assessment.
Eighth graders explore water pollution. In this stewardship lesson, 8th graders draw comparisons between potable and impaired waters. Students use the Learning Link website to examine ways people are fighting pollution and then design an action hero to end water pollution.
Kids fight obesity by comparing the USDA food intake suggestions to what they personally consume throughout the day. They watch a video, read texts, and explore related vocabulary which they use as they compose an oral presentation. Hand outs and video links are included.
An important part of balancing caloric intake to energy expenditure is knowing how many Calories you are consuming. In the fifth of a seven-lesson series on food and energy, learners estimate their daily caloric intake, then use a handout to find the foods they typically consume in a day, and finally, add up the Calories to get a daily total to compare to their estimates. The activity is wrapped up by having kids think about how they could make healthier choices when it comes to eating. 
This application allows you to track calorie consumption and exercise. Food intake is also broken down by carbohydrate, fat, protein, sodium, sugar, and fiber, helping users to live strong!
Students are required not to change their usual eating pattern while recording everything they eat and drink for 1 day. They evaluate the nutrient composition of their diet, as well as their dietary intake and behavior within the contextt of current dietary recommendations.
Students explore the different water issues facing society today. For this environmental science lesson, students research about water treatment methods. They brainstorm ways to conserve water.
Students monitor their calorie intake and energy expenditure. They keep track of daily data in a journal and assess and adjust their diets as appropriate.
Students complete an online quiz about their familiarity with water issues. As a class, they watch a demonstration by their teacher and work together in groups to make water change into its various states. To end the lesson, they test water's conductivity and test it for contaminates.
Students investigate the concept of how water is used to produce food. The goal is to see how some foods could be produced using less water. They create a menu that helps to conserve water. Students also analyze the contents of the average daily diet.
Students calculate the calories in the food they eat. In this health science lesson, students record everything they eat and drink for a day. They identify the total calories they use daily using the activity chart provided.
Second graders learn about the human body. In this biology lesson plan, 2nd graders will begin with the basics of understanding charts and graphs and progress into units that cover the body systems, and mental and emotional health. Students will learn how their daily choices effect their bodies.
Learners observe a model of a waterwheel to investigate the transformations of energy involved in turning the blades of a hydro-turbine into work. They work as engineers to create a model for a new waterwheel while considering resources, such as time and materials, in their design. Students also discuss and explore the characteristics of hydropower plants.
