The Five Food Groups - Introduction to Nutrition

Young scholars study the five food groups as an introduction to nutrition. In this nutrition lesson, students learn about which foods belong in each of the five food groups and they determine the need to eat a healthy diet. They keep a journal of the food that they eat over a weekend before comparing the food to the food pyramid. They complete the journal activity for another two day and compare it to the original one.

Lesson Planet has helped me as a teacher tremendously! When I am searching for ways to reach my students using good hands on plans, I turn to Lesson Planet. When I do not have a lot of time to plan, Lesson Planet is my friend.
