This unit on healthy food contains vocabulary, listening and reading comprehension activities on food and food groups created as complementary materials to some YouTube videos and interactive games. The notebook presentation has 4 main parts that can be used as follows:
1. Video: click on the instruction to watch the YouTube video and have your students list the food the characters buy at the supermarket.
2. Mi Plato: The pdf document has a table with food that can be classified into the different sections the plate is divided. This is the plate designed by the USDA to help kids and families make healthy decisions.
-The table can be used as a bingo chart having students select 10 items marking a circle on one of the sides of the pictures. As the teacher calls out items, students cross out the ones they selected. Students can also talk about the food they like and the one they dislike.
-Clicking on the instruction on the third slide will take you to the interactive game to practice the vocabulary on the table.
3. The link to the song is attached to the instruction. Students need to read the lyrics and complete the song adding the words they hear. The video is very entertaining and has very good advice on healthy food.
4. The cartoon is intended for both oral and reading practice.
-Have students take turns being the customer or the waiter and changing their orders.
-Students can add up the price of the order for some math practice.
-Divide the class into two groups to play "Tic Tac Toe" drawing a circle or an X over each correctly answered question.
This is the introduction to my unit on Costarrican food, and the next two slides refer to the main staples that you can use to practice the food groups and analyze how healthy students think Tica food is.
