Learning about the foods that we eat and how those foods affect our bodies is an important part of early childhood education. This unit includes science, math, and literacy components and provides hands-on experiences for real understanding. When students have some knowledge of the types of foods that are healthy, they are able to have some control over their food choices and take pride in choosing healthier foods. In this unit, I have provided some basic graphic organizers and sorting work as a supplement to hands-on activities. I have included some suggestions for science labs, small group, and whole group activities, as well as some favorite literature connections. This is a memorable and applicable unit that has a real impact on student lives, even at a very young age!
