Are you looking for engaging materials to teach students about healthy eating habits and good nutrition? This unit uses mini-books, interactive notebook foldables, worksheets, and file folder activities presenting information about food groups and making healthy eating choices to do just that. Students will be introduced to basic information on food groups, appropriate serving sizes of different food groups, and recommended guidelines for healthy eating. The mix of materials allows students to practice the skills in different ways.

The foldables are designed to be used as free-standing materials or part of interactive notebooks. I’ve included picture task analyses of how to assemble them for the students to use and templates with pictures for non-writers to use to complete the activities. The mini-books and foldables are provided in color as well as black and white depending on whether you wish the students to color them on their own or have a color copy and to provide the teacher with a model to show the students without having to create your own.

Interactive Foldables with templates and picture task analyses for assembling

  • A double flip flap book with 2 templates that can be used as the bottom sheet—one that is plain boxes and one that has boxes for placing food pictures (also included).
  • A double flip flap book for identifying recommended daily amounts of each food group. Students write in (under the flap) the recommended servings for each category. For students who cannot write in the servings independently, there is a guided sheet that can be used as the bottom layer in which students just write in how many cups or ounces of each category.
  • A flip flap book for grouping foods that belong in each food group. For students who cannot write in the servings independently, there is a guided sheet that can be used as the bottom layer in which students glue pictures (included) of food for each category.
  • 2 Versions of a Layered Flip Book designed to have students sort foods by food group. There are 2 versions. One with color outlines and one in black and white the students can color. Students can write in the foods for different groups or can use the supplied pictures to cut and paste them onto the proper page.
