The “Healthy Eating” activity packet is designed to meet the curriculum expectations for the Ontario 2015 Grade 6 Health curriculum. This packet has students:
- Apply their knowledge of medical, emotional, practical, and societal factors that influence eating habits and food choices to develop personal guidelines for healthier eating;
- Apply their recognition of internal hunger and thirst cues and their knowledge of physical factors that influence the desire to eat and drink to develop personal guidelines for healthier eating;
- Explain how healthy eating and active living work together to improve a person's general health and well-being and how the benefits of both can be promoted to others;
This packet includes lesson plans, worksheets and reflection activities to address the above expectations. Each lesson includes a lesson introduction, a core learning activity and a lesson consolidation. Students are asked to think about what influences their food choices, and an additional lesson on the influence of the media is included in the "Additional Activities" section of this activity packet.
If you have any questions, please feel free to let me know.
