Supermarket Project. Teaching Guide.
Florida Univ., Gainesville. Florida Cooperative Extension Service.
The focus of this document, one in a series of consumer education materials for 4-H Club members and secondary students, is supermarkets, food, and purchasing. The materials in the series are based on the philosophy that teenagers need the training and guidance to develop the skills needed to become competent consumers. The supermarket project focuses upon four major objectives: help students gain an understanding of ways to save money on the food bill; enable students to learn how to use the facts on labels to help them buy the best product; acquaint students with some of the new supermarket tools--unit pricing, open dating, and nutritional labeling; and acquaint students with how the tools can best help the food shopper. The document is divided into two sections. The first section is the teacher's guide which contains a statement of purpose, objectives, ideas, suggested resources, learning activities, and evaluation. The second section is the student material which contains background reading and learning activities. (Author/JR)
