Nutrition: A Thematic Unit

Young learners explore nutrition and the food groups in these two mini-lesson plan ideas. First, kindergarteners have a discussion about their health and how different foods contribute to it before making their own personal food pyramid. Then for homework, they bring in food labels and use them to make a 'plate' of healthy foods in correct proportions. This resource also includes some ideas for cross-curricular activities such as poems, songs and science experiments that deal with nutrition.

Lesson Planet has changed my whole teaching style. I am able to customize my lesson plans for relevance not by what is already available. I like the relevance to issues facing today's youth.
