Take the time to teach your students about nutrition! This NEW 3-day unit is a great addition to any Health class or Physical Education course, but could also be included in core subjects -LA, Science, even Social Studies. Thank you for being ambassadors for the health of your students!
This 3-day unit includes:
1.) a movie fill-in packet for Joe Cross' documentary "THE KIDS MENU" which is available for instant-stream on Netflix, among other places. What I love about this documentary, and why I developed this product and used it with my students, is the positive focus that it has on the future, rather than only belabor all of the nutrition issues that plague our country (which can be overwhelming). Rather than just dumping on the students doom and gloom, this documentary has an inspiring upward flow that really speaks hope for change. Even better still, it illuminates the fact that the KIDS can be the ones who lead us out of our health crisis and take charge of their own health destinies.
2.) answer key for documentary packet
3.) a teacher instruction outline
4.) discussion question packet
5.) writing prompts
THANK YOU for all you do! If you purchase this product, PLEASE give me a rating or review! I would SO appreciate it.
Please be aware: this video discusses sensitive issues including: childhood obesity, poverty, diabetes, & parents with disease. Some students may become uncomfortable or emotional. I strongly recommend having a discussion with your students prior to watching this video, and adopting a zero-tolerance policy for any immaturity dealing with the video content: making light of it, teasing other students or making comparisons, “fat-shaming”.
