This is a project designed to help students learn more about nutrition of the foods they eat, eating disorders, and other nutrition topics such as how to build muscle, etc.
Students pick their topic based on the included project detail sheet and rubrics. They work on the project in class and at home for 2-3 days, then present the projects to the class. There are 3 different project options to choose from, and students can also pick how they wish to convey the information (poster, powerpoint, video, etc.)
Students learn about calories in foods, nutrients, fat content, protein, and carbohydrates.
In this bundle, I have included the project checklist sheet and grading rubric for general ed students as well as a modified version of the project. I also have included a food log for students to fill out as they listen to the presentations that their classmates give.
Students love this project, mainly because nutrition is a subject that impacts us all, and middle schoolers typically love to eat. They will have the opportunity to taste many different foods that are brought in for the nutrition project.
I hope you enjoy!
