NOTE★: This Independent Study Nutrition Unit is for teachers who want students to work independently from home. It includes online step-step STUDENT DIRECTIONS that students can read and follow themselves and Google Slide worksheets they do at home. Includes minimal teaching points, and teacher keys.


If you want a Nutrition Unit with step-by-step TEACHER DIRECTIONS that follow PowerPoint slides that you can teach in class or on a Zoom-type online lesson, you will want my 4-Week Nutrition Unit, along with the Supplemental Google Docs Add-on so you can first teach the lesson, and then students can do worksheets, surveys and tests online! The 4-Week version includes 260 pages of teacher directions, 6 PowerPoint slideshows, teacher keys, and student worksheets, for print; and online Google student docs if you purchase the add-on.


Here is what previous buyers said about this resource posted in my TeachersPayTeachers Store:

Previous Buyer Note: These independent study lessons are sold separately from any of my other curriculums. While lessons in this independent study program are taken from my #1 Best-Selling Nutrition Unit, my #1 Best-Selling full High School Health and Middle School (or Level 1, 2, or 3 Middle Health) curriculums, the lessons are in a completely different format. Rather than including step-by-step teacher directions and PowerPoints, this program includes online or printable step-by-step STUDENT directions and online or printable Fill-in Student Pages.
