PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The concepts and My Plate graphics in this 80+ page unit have come from the USDA My Plate website (http://www.choosemyplate.gov/index.html). The handouts and activities are aligned with the government recommendations from this site. This resource is designed for children in grades 3-6, but may be useful for grades 7-8 as well.

This unit is divided into six sections by food group. The final section is meant to help students integrate what they learned in the previous five sections and includes, meal planning sheets, independent projects and a final test. One way to use these materials is to spend a week in each section to make a six week unit.

Most of the materials in this unit fall into one of three categories. Use the ones that work best for you. Please note that all of the materials have been color coded for easy reference according to the colors used on the My Plate Icon. However, they will still print out fine in grayscale.

Posters/Packet Covers
These feature the My Plate Icon prominently along with the name of a specific food group. They can be used as posters around your room, section dividers or as cover sheets for packets of handouts and worksheets.

Handouts
These are informative pages that students can use as a reference and to share with their families. Each food group includes a handout detailing what foods are included in the group and another handout about why it is important to eat these foods. There is also a My Plate Introduction handout and a glossary of terms.

Worksheets and graphic organizers
The bulk of this unit is made up of worksheets and graphic organizers about the five food groups. The first two in each unit require students to use information they learned from the handouts. There are also some other more free-form activities. In addition, each unit includes a worksheet to use in conjunction with a school hot lunch menu, a home inventory, a guided report, and a short multiple choice quiz. Answer Keys are included when appropriate.
