This worksheet will help students learn the parts of the FDA Nutrition Facts Food Label as they identify the amounts of particular nutrient contained within a given label. Create stations and have students rotate, have students bring in a label from home or the cafeteria, or have them prepared in advance!
Students will identify the type and amount (Including units) of various essential nutrients including protein, fats, vitamins, and sugars. Then, students will complete analysis questions about the ingredient list, allergy warnings, and an overall food evaluation based on the label. The questions have been structured so that students are required to support their claims with evidence, bringing in their ELA skills.
