This activity asks students to list (in Spanish!) the food the typically eat in a day. For breakfast, lunch and dinner, students list what they’ve eaten by placing foods (or ingredients if it’s something like a sandwich or pizza) into the correct food pyramid categories.
Once they’ve completed their food diary for the day, students tally up the number of servings of each food group they’ve had. They can then compare it to the included food pyramid to decide how healthy a day they have had to answer the final question.
This makes a great review activity for food vocabulary and gives motivated students the opportunity to look up and use new words to describe their diets. You can print several copies back to back to create a project that lasts a week or two. It’s also a great cross-curricular activity for science and health classes!
