Introductory letter

  1. 1. Dear Parents/Legal Guardians,<br />For the next three weeks your child will be working on a nutrition project, researching the nutritious value of the foods they are eating now, and discovering healthier choices available. Each student will start by documenting everything they eat for 7 days and nights with photos, videos and descriptions(estimated calorie content required). They will also work through tasks and create products. These tasks will vary and sometimes require teamwork. Technology skills will also be learned and sharpened. Students will be required to create a menu(meal plan) of nutrient rich, lower calorie foods (two days or 8-12 meals). Additionally, students will cook and/or prepare one of these meals at home (under adult supervision) and have that adult take pictures or video of the event. Make sure to take a picture of the final product before eating it! <br />Finally, after reflection, they will write a 200 word summary of what impacted them most during the project. I believe this project should be done because it could help extend lives and provide better quality of life.<br />Products to be graded:<br />*Menu/Diet Plan (20% of project grade)<br />*A Blog (40%)<br />* Cooking a Healthy Meal (20%)<br />* 200 word impact summary (20%)<br />Please contact me (jworsham@henry.k12.ga.us) if you have any questions.<br />Thank you,<br />Coach Worsham<br />
