Examine food choices and the nutritional properties of food groups with this visually appealing whole-class lesson plan. This will take a bit of preparation, but once you do it, you can use the materials for years.

You place cut-out images of food on the large plate poster, then allow students to draw food and a drink on their own "plate."
