can be used as additions to a lesson or series of lessons
about health or healthy eating.
My suggested route through
the pages would be:
|A week before
- Tell the students that
you're going to do a topic on healthy eating
- ask them to monitor
their diets using the diary page
- Suggest that they keep
an eye out for labels on foods which give them
information about nutritional values of foods.
- Elicit the nutrients on
which you wish them to focus (A teacher led brainstorm
should work well) The food labels could be used
- Give them the tasksheet
- Help them to find the
necessary data and enter it into the spreadsheet.
- Give them the
presentation hint sheet get additions to write around
the edges from the students. You may wish to
give a "badly prepared" demonstration for
them to criticize.
- Help them to get the
information from the spreadsheet to the presentation
- Give them time and
possibly a homework to prepare their presentations and
evaluation sheets if they are using them.
- Give the students a
little while to set up then try to stick to a schedule
for presenting the work
|Follow up work
- You could plan a class
display of targets or for awareness raising in the
wider school or community
- You could keep a class
diary in which any action is recorded
- Students could write
articles for the school paper/magazine
