You will also be assigned a group and in your group you will be assigned a food group to research.
  • The Task Student Page Introduction Task Process Evaluation Conclusion Credits [ Teacher Page ] At the end of your climb you should be able to accurately describe the different sections of the food pyramid. You will also need to provide a completed visual (example: a menu, a poster, or even an actual meal prepared). Once in your groups you will need to research interesting facts, and what foods the group consists of. Title

Students provided 2-3 facts about the food group and their visual needed more research, planning and was neat Students accurately provided 4-5 facts about the food group and their visual displayed planning, some research and some neatness. Students accurately provided 5 facts about the food group and their visual displayed planning, research, and neatness Group Work 1 member of the group did most of the work and the tasks were not delegated at all. 1 or 2 members of the group did not contribute to the project and the tasks were not delegated evenly All members of the group contributed but there was some difficulty with delegating tasks All members of the group contributed to the project and tasks were delegated effectively and evenly

  • Teacher Script (Teacher) [ Student Page ] Title Introduction Learners Standards Process Resources Credits Teacher Page This activity is mostly a self guided activity and little instruction is needed outside of the directions posted because of the intent of the project and lesson. The kids should be able to work through their problems since there are very little directions to follow. This lesson is intended for students to grasp a main concept of the food pyramid and for them to experiment with different meals that are healthy and to work as a group. If students are having difficulty I would suggest to encourage them to do what they feel is best and to ask their peers. This page is linked to the Process segment off of the Teacher Page Evaluation Teacher Script Conclusion
