Product Description
This package is an inquiry-based project about the 6 essential nutrients. The project breaks the class into six groups, assigning each group to teach the rest of the class about the function, food sources, and deficiencies of their assigned nutrient through a presentation. In addition, each group will research three inquiry questions about their nutrient as it relates to teenagers. For example, the vitamin group might research which vitamins promote healthy skin complexion. The carbohydrate group might research why athletes carb load before a big game. The package includes a student note sheet for students to use while other groups are presenting. A detailed rubric is included that assesses students presentations, powerpoint, research participation, inquiry questions, and answers and work cited. A presentation template is also included and can be used for lower grade levels and students with accommodations/modifications.
