Researching Recipes: A Sixth Grade WebQuest on the Food Pyramid Kristen McClafferty ~
Introduction TaskProcessEvaluationConclusionTeacher PageResources America needs YOUR help! The MyPyramid recipe research committee went on strike! This group is responsible for finding healthy recipes for American citizens. Do you know enough about foods in the five food groups to be able to help MyPyramid and save the general welfare of the American people?
This WebQuest is to help you understand what food groups are a part of MyPyramid. It will give you ideas to use at home, so you can have a well- balanced diet. You will visit different websites and gather recipes from each of the food groups. You will use these to compile a class cookbook. Task IntroductionTaskProcessEvaluationConclusionTeacher PageResources
Process There will be 5 groups of 4 students. The orange group is the grain group, the green group is the vegetable group, the red group is the fruit group, the blue group is the milk group, and the purple group is the meat and beans group. Inside each group, there will be 3 recipe researchers and 1 layout designer. Here is what each student must do: Recipe Researcher: Each recipe researcher must find 2 recipes for his/her food group. As a group of 3, you must find 6 different recipes: 1 for breakfast, 1 for lunch, 1 for a snack, 1 for dinner, and 1 for dessert. These 3 students will decide amongst themselves who will find which recipes. Each group must also have 1 recipe from the oils subgroup that is found on MyPyramid. The grain group will find a breakfast recipe including oil(s), the vegetable group will find a lunch recipe including oil(s), the fruit group will find a snack recipe including oil(s), the milk group will find a dinner recipe including oil(s), and the meat and beans group will find a dessert recipe including oil(s).

Process Layout Designer: The Layout Designer will copy and paste all 6 recipes into a Microsoft Publisher document. They should be in order: breakfast, lunch, snack, dinner, and dessert. (The oils recipe should be on a separate page, with at least 1 appropriate picture.) There should be 2 recipes on the first 2 pages, and 1 recipe on the last page. The first 2 pages should include at least 2 appropriate pictures, and the last page should include at least 1 appropriate picture. Also, this individual will design a title page for his/her food group. This page should include your food group, your food groups motto from MyPyramid, which can be found on the 3 rd Resources page, and at least 5 different foods that belong to your food group (which can also be found on the 3 rd Resources page). (I will design a title page for oils, because it doesnt have a motto). This page should also have at least 1 appropriate picture. me your portion of the cookbook when you are finished.
