Classroom Activities in Nutrition in Teenage Pregnancy. Bulletin No. 91140.
Gans, Gian; Hetzel, Barbara A.
The lessons developed in this guide were designed for pregnant teenagers and teenage parents enrolled in the Wisconsin School-Age Parent (SAPAR) Program. The lessons can also be adapted for use in non-SAPAR courses such as family and consumer education, health, and language arts. The guide has eight chapters: Introduction (a preliminary lesson reviewing elementary concepts in nutrition and two survey sheets, "My Nutrition Interests" and a "Starter Survey," for the teacher to evaluate which of the 18 lessons would be most appropriate to teach in a particular class); Nutrients; Specific Wellness Issues; Making Smart Consumer Choices; Postpartum Nutrition in Teenage Pregnancy; Basic Food Groups: Nutrition for all Teenagers; Resources; and Appendixes. Lessons 1-13 (in Chapters 2-5) present diverse nutritional topics for pregnant teenagers, including prenatal and postnatal issues for mother and infant. Lessons 14-18 discuss nutrition for all teenagers. Activities supplement each lesson; the resource chapter includes a broad range of publications, films, and filmstrips. The three appendixes contain a food composition table, a fast food composition table, and answers to the introductory surveys and the puzzles included in the body of the document. (LL)
