Learn major nutrients, food labels, and the USDA MyPyramid

Students learn everything they need to know about the USDA’s 2011 MyPlate guidelines. As an “Appetizer,” students complete whole-class or team activities to learn about major nutrients, food labels, and MyPlate specifics. The main “CHOW” simulation has student teams plan meals within a limited budget, shop at a classroom store, react to fate cards (allergies, food shortages, etc.) and keep daily records. Throughout, the students must maintain exercise logs, an essential part of the new USDA guidelines. An extensive third “A la Carte” section offers optional activities in art, ELA, science, health, social studies, and home economics for enrichment or differentiated instruction. The guide includes all the reproducible materials, assessments, and rubrics. Grades 4–8. Interact. 136 pages. 2011 revised edition.
