This Introduction to Nutrition lesson plan also includes:
Fourth graders take a closer look at the foods they eat and the nutritional value of each. This instructional activity helps them see why foods are grouped together the way they are and what types of nutrition are provided by these food groups. They also get to take part in an interesting activity that uses Wonder Bread. This instructional activity would be an ideal jumping-off point for a full-blown unit on nutrition and healthy eating.
