These 25 information cards can be printed out and then cut out for student use. They can be used in a variety of ways, but one fun activity is to get students into pairs and ask them to deal the cards out between them and play a game of trumps. The game is simple. The first person looks at their first card and reads out the information from one of the headings, for instance “calories, 206”. The other player then reads out the corresponding information on their card. The player with the highest data wins that hand. The winner of the hand retains control of the game and chooses the next bit of information to share with the other player. The game continues until one player has all the cards.
This is a great way of helping students to learn about healthy and unhealthy food, the meaning of calories and fat content and other food related issues.
You can even make up your own rules. Perhaps change the rules so that the winner of each hand is the one with the healthiest data, lower calories or fat content, higher fibre and vitamin C etc.
The cards can also be printed out to a larger scale and used as posters in your room.
