Within each lesson the educator is guided to give a brief overview of what is to be expected and to ask the students of any prior knowledge of the topic. Also included is an evaluation for the students, so the teacher can assess what the students learned from the lesson.
Each lesson comes with handouts and a recommended recipe, and includes a corresponding story and music CD. The "Physical Activity" section in each lesson is paired with a specific song. Each referenced song includes the lyrics too. The "sit down" activity involves students working at their desk. An example of this type of activity is an arts and craft project.
