      Good stuff! I had my students do the food labels work, and they were successful. We were not as successful with the "All you ever need to know about nutrition" as I was not sure where this fit in the scope and sequence, and could not find the supporting materials (maybe part of the whole bundle? Not sure--I just bought this one piece). But I appreciate including images of labels. We made it work!

      My students loved taking what we were learning and creating something out of it all

      Amy K.

      My students loved this activity and made posters that we hung around the school!

      My students loved this lesson. Most of the information in the powerpoint, I had already given them. However, they love the poster project, and are looking forward to getting to display them in our cafeteria.
