Product Description
Nutrition Lessons - ★Whew! This 4-week "Nutrition Unit" is TPT’s #1 best selling Nutrition unit, and now these health lessons are even better! Besides 202 MB and 270 pages of step-by-step teacher instructions and a 447-Slide PowerPoint, my "Nutrition Unit" is now newly enhanced and updated!

**********************************************************************

★This is the #1 best-selling Nutrition Unit on the whole TeachersPayTeachers website, and it's taken directly from my Full Semester/Year High School Health Curriculum, and my Middle/Junior High School Health Curriculum which are both #1 Best-Selling Health Curriculums on TPT!

**********************************************************************

★ALL FUTURE UPDATES FOR LIFE ARE INCLUDED!! All new lessons, activities, and any changes that I create for this unit are FREE!! Simply go to your "My Purchases" folder and download anytime!

*********************************************************************

★Do you want your students to be more engaged, be empowered to make healthy choices, and also love your Health class? Read on…

*****************************************************************

★Here is what sets this curriculum apart from others:

Will this program be easy to teach? Yes! It’s not just a unit outline. 270 pages of highly organized step-by-step teacher directions follow 6 PowerPoints, and the directions tell you exactly to say and do!!

Will the program meet standards? Yes, this program meets 11 Common Core Standards, 44/46 National Health Standard indicators, and 14 of my Washington State Health Standards. It’s very likely to meet YOUR state’s Middle or High School Health Education standards as well!

Is this program researched-based? Yes, in this curriculum you will find health goals and behavioral outcomes that are research-based and theory-driven.

Should I buy this program or one created by a curriculum company? Why buy lessons designed by people who've possibly never taught in a classroom when you can get lessons from a teacher with a National Board Certification in Health and 19 years of experience teaching 9th grade Health? This curriculum is fun, interactive, and has engaging lessons, and it's amazingly more affordable than ones created by publishing companies!

Will the lessons be effective for my students? Yes! It's been "teacher and kid tested." I've taught this Nutrition Unit and revised it, taught it again, perfected it, and improved it.

What if I need to change a lesson? No problem! Documents and PowerPoints are editable and docs are included in both Word and PDF formats.

Will my students like this program? Students love this program, and students who like what they’re learning are more likely to choose to actually use what they learned outside the classroom.

What sets this curriculum apart from others is that:

-I-T'-S -N-O-T -J-U-S-T- -A- -U-N-I-T- -O-U-T-L-I-N-E-

Highly organized, step-by-step teacher directions follow daily PowerPoints and tell you exactly to say!!

*******************************************************************

★It’s perfect for any 6th through 12th grader, and is also -included in Word and PDF for easy editing!

**********************************************************************

★This product is my complete 4-week Nutrition Unit. There are 20 lessons included.

**********************************************************************

★There is nothing canned about these lessons-they are all kid-tested, revised, edited, and have been deemed "a fun unit" by the high standards of my many 14 year old students!

**********************************************************************

★These are not "sit and get" lessons, rather students are active: from helping Joe cut 500 calories to lose weight, to measuring sugar and crisco in baggies, to tallying their food for a day, to making fast food restaurant posters, this unit is hands on, fun, and educational. -Personally, I feel it's one of my best units!
