The Food Pyramid

Learning about nutrition and how to eat healthy foods is very important for kids these days. Here is a lesson plan, designed for 4th graders, that teaches these important skills. Pupils plan nutritional meals by using the USDA's Food Guide Pyramid, and by analyzing food labels. Groups of students are charged with sorting foods into specific groups based on nutritional values, and they must report their groupings to the class. A very good and important lesson plan.
