This nutrition project is an extension of the Nutrition Unit, which will allow students to research and apply information to their personal and family health. You can use this project as homework throughout the Nutrition Unit or allow students class time to complete it (Will need approximately five 90 minute classes to complete Appetizers and Entrees while Dessert will need to be completed at home). There are three levels to this project: Appetizers, Entrees, Dessert. Students will be required to gather 16 points from the Appetizer Section of gathering content, 20 points from the Entree Section of applying content, and 20 points from the Dessert Section of applying content to individual and family health. Within all sections, students have choice as to what topics they research and assignments (total of 26 assignments to choose from) they complete. Students have the option of watching video clips/documentaries, researching, reading articles, and using nutrition apps to investigate nutrition topics. Students will love this engaging and relevant standard-based project! Parents will love their child's new interest in nutrition and changing family behaviors!
