The Grade 7, Unit 1: Healthy Eating activity packet is designed to meet both the overall and specific expectations outlined in the 2019 Ontario Health and Physical Education curriculum document. This packet is also designed to meet the recommendations outlined in the Canada's Food Guide released in January 2019.
Focus of the Unit:
The purpose of this packet is to have students explore what eating patterns and eating habits are and the impact that our eating patterns and eating habits have on our overall health. Throughout the unit, students explore different factors that may influence the eating patterns and eating habits established by individual. Students also explore how we can improve our own eating patterns and eating habits, and the importance of doing so.
