In this unit, students will know how many servings of each food group is needed to promote a healthy lifestyle. By the end of the unit, each group of students will have a balanced meal plan for one day. They will also prepare a postcard of one food group and make an ABC book of food.
Essential Question What is Healthy? Unit Questions What do we need to do to stay healthy? What happens to our bodies when we don’t eat healthy? Content Questions What are the food groups? How many servings do we need daily of each food group?
This project will help my students develop 21 st century skills by: Collaborating with peers. Analyzing data about the Food Pyramid and drawing conclusions to answer Unit Questions Solving problems and making decisions about their meal plan. Communicating with others.
Purpose of the Assessment To gather information about what students already know and what they need to know about a healthy diet. What I want to learn from my students ? I want to find out what they already know about the food groups. How I have tried to promote higher - order thinking ? I ask students to sort food into food groups. How the assessment information helps me and my students plan for upcoming activities in the unit ? If students have misconceptions about healthy foods I can provide scaffolds. What feedback or additional ideas I ’ d like ? I would like help on my assessment.
I would like my students to be able choose foods for a healthy lifestyle.
