NOTE★: This Independent Study Nutrition Unit is for teachers who want students to work independently. It includes for print or online step-step STUDENT DIRECTIONS that students can read and follow themselves and Google Slide worksheets they can do on their own!

If you want a Nutrition Unit with step-by-step TEACHER DIRECTIONS that follow PowerPoint slides that you can teach in class or on a Zoom-type online lesson, you will want my 4-Week Nutrition Unit, so you can first teach the lesson, and then students can do worksheets, surveys and tests online! The 4-Week version includes 260 pages of teacher directions, 6 PowerPoint slideshows, teacher keys, and student worksheets, for print; and online Google student docs!


★You have never seen a program like this one! No more having students do vocabulary words out of an old Health book to get a Health credit!


★Get kids engaged and grab their interest with interactive surveys, worksheets, art projects, introspective reflections, writing assignments, and more.

Here are some awesome features of this program:

1. Aligned with State, National, and Common Core Standards. Standards are listed for easy reference in the "Table of Contents" and in each lesson.

2. The program is EASY - LOW Prep! It's truly "independent learning" and the teacher needs to do very little to administer this program. The point of the whole program is that students work independently-at home or in a classroom.

3. It is medically and scientifically accurate.

4. It's very organized!! Simply use online, or print re-usable packets and "Student Fill-In" packets, sign a contract with your students and go!

5. There is also a teacher packet with full program directions, suggested pacing, unit test, and assignment and test keys. You can print one copy, or save paper and just use the teacher directions from a computer.
