Product Description
This lesson plan is a ~0.75 hour lesson on nutrition for 2nd through 4th grade students, which may be presented by a teacher or healthcare professional. This lesson plan is a revised version of the lesson after a trial with 3rd grade students at a local elementary school and receiving feedback from an elementary school educator with over 35 years of experience. The lesson is a “Show, Taste, and Tell” about vegetables, berries, and fruits that students may eat (e.g. apples, oranges) and produce that may be more unusual to them (e.g. kiwi, peaches). A double-sided 1 page handout is given to the students in hopes that they will share it with their parents. Two primary goals exist for this lesson:

(1) To demonstrate to elementary students the variety of produce and its palatability to encourage them to choose to ask for a “yummy” fruit instead of a pack of candy the next time that the family is in the grocery store.

(2) To foster nutrition education of adults through information found on the student/parent handout and through discussion with their children

This lesson plan was produced as a community service project for my local community. As a future physician, I have placed it on TpT for free to help provide fantastic nutrition education in elementary classrooms throughout the world.
