PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Nutrition Lessons - ★This 21-Lesson Independent Study Nutrition Unit makes teaching Nutrition easy for any 6th - 12th grade teacher!

It's perfect for alternative schools, home schools, students with an extended absence, Health Credit Retrieval, Self-contained Classrooms, and the lessons make perfect sub plans!!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

You have never seen a program like this one! No more having students do vocabulary words out of an old Health book to get a Health credit!

Get kids engaged and grab their interest with interactive surveys, worksheets, art projects, introspective reflections, parent communicators, writing assignments, and more.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

It's super organized and easy to administer this independent program!

All you need to do is make re-usable master packets of the "Student Directions" and print the "Student Fill-in Packet"
that students complete and turn in. These are in a separate document for easy printing.

A check off assignment sheet and contract to determine time requirements and sign are included.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

This Common Core aligned 3-week Nutrition Unit will help you present an engaging, medically-based, revealing, and interesting nutrition unit with ease.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

There is no "canned" curriculum here...This Nutrition unit was created for teachers, by a teacher, with relevant material that meets the needs of teens today.

This unit (Taken from my complete semester Alternative School/Independent Study/Homeschool Health Curriculum) was designed by me, an 18-year veteran Health teacher, and the program is currently being used in our alternative high school.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

It's completely independent learning for your students-no textbook is needed, no videos are needed, students need no Internet or computer! Program can be done in class, or completely at home.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here are some awesome features of this program:

1. Aligned with State, National, and Common Core Standards. Standards are listed for easy reference in the "Table of Contents" and in each lesson.

2. The program is EASY!!! It's truly "independent learning" and the teacher needs to do very little to administer this program. The point of the whole program is that students work independently-at home or in a classroom.

3. It is medically and scientifically accurate.

4. It's very organized!! Simply print re-usable packets and "Student Fill-In" packets, sign a contract with your students and go!

5. There is also a teacher packet with full program directions, suggested pacing, unit test, and assignment and test keys. You can print one copy, or save paper and just use the teacher directions from a computer.
