Nutrition Education-Choose Well, Be Well: A Curriculum Guide for the Upper Elementary Grades.
Merklein, Robert, Ed.; Smith, Theodore, Ed.
Part of the "Nutrition Education-Choose Well, Be Well" curriculum series, this guide was developed to help teachers, food service personnel, professionals, and parents provide nutrition education and make nutrition come alive in the classroom, home, or cafeteria. Organized by grade level (from fourth through sixth), activities described are intended to contribute to students' ability to reach expected performance levels identified as being minimum proficiency levels for nutrition in California schools. Within each grade-level section are information acquisition lessons, values awareness lessons, and open-ended discussion lessons. Each lesson focuses on one of the following topics: food choices, factors influencing food choices, food-related careers, consumer competencies, and food handling. A description of procedures to be followed and a list of appropriate instructional materials accompany each lesson. Illustrations, handouts, work sheets, games, and other related materials referred to in the text are provided in nine appendices. (MP)
