This lesson is fun and gets the students working in groups to explore the food guide "My Plate", as they create their own "plate". I cut the patterns for the plate ahead of time and glue them on poster board. I then break the children into groups and give them grocery circulars that I receive in the mail. I have the children work together to cut out pictures from the circulars and glue them in the appropriate food group. This packet includes the templates to create the plate, the labels and the forks so you can create a replica of "My Plate".
