PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Health Lesson - ★MyPlate Food Label Fun!

Ever wonder if a food product was "healthy"?

Did you know there's an easy formula you can use to find out???

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

★Talk about a jammed-packed nutrition lesson!!

This lesson combines MyPlate food groups with a challenging guessing game as to whether 15 products in those groups are healthy, and a fun food label reading scramble around the room to find the answers!!

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

★This lesson is taken directly from my Full Semester/Year High School Health Curriculum, which is the “#1 Best-Selling Health Curriculum” on the whole TPT website!

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

★Guessing game, prizes, calculators, formulas, and scrambling..It's fun and educational!

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

★This lesson was created as PART 2 to my #1 best-selling lesson: Food Label Scavenger Hunt

If you already have the scavenger hunt, know that the guessing game, food labels, and scramble activities in this lesson are ALL NEW!!-this new lesson is a unique stand alone, and focuses on MYPLATE!!

Both lessons are stand alones, but they work very well together!!

The PART 1 "Scavenger Hunt" lesson has 42 food labels that cover a variety of nutritional concepts, while this lesson focuses on MyPlate, and the additional math formula to determine if a product is healthy!

Both lessons ensure that your students will easily be able to read food labels and determine if food products are healthy...What a great life skill!
