F.O.O.D. for Thought: Focus on Optimal Development of the Child: Intermediate Level. Teaching Activities in Nutrition, Physical and Mental Health, and Learning Abilities.
Durham City Schools, NC.
The booklet suggests 32 classroom and teaching activities for intermediate teachers, grades 4-6, in the four areas of nutrition, physical health, mental health, and developmental skills. The project was developed to show how nutritionists, physical and mental health workers, and learning specialists could assist children and classroom teachers in schools. The activities can supplement academic areas, using the skills of listening, speaking, writing, and computing, and offer approaches which the teacher may match to life experiences in the classroom to extend children's learning. The teaching activities utilize gamesmanship, participation, and student involvement. There are eight concepts in each of the four sections. Each lesson concept has one or more activities, each with a single objective. Steps for the activities, materials, time needed, and comments to teachers on procedures and resources are listed. Lessons may be correlated with spelling, science, social studies, or other subjects; however, each activity is presented so that it may be used individually and so that the teacher can improvise or adapt it for a particular class.
