|Reviewers Comments: ||This curriculum set has been specifically designed for fifth graders. It incorporates skill building activities that teach children how to purchase, store and prepare foods safely. They recognize how to use food labels and are encouraged to eat a variety of foods from each group. The importance of physical activity, body acceptance, and understanding media influence on food choice are also addressed. Basic lessons about food safety help children understand how to practice good personal hygiene, sanitation and safe food handling.
There are 11 lessons total and each lesson is complete with objectives, a supply list, and advance preparations required. Also included are core activities, handouts, and games and additional activities that complement each of the lessons. Activities also incorporate other core areas, including social studies (grains around the world), language arts (writing haikus), and math (counting calorie and fat activities). There is also a teacher reference section for each lesson, which contains information such as a Food Label Glossary, Fascinating Facts about Veggies, and Why We Eat: Internal and External Influences. Questions and answers for the assessment are also included. In addition, lessons include family newsletters that can be copied and sent home.
