Teaching Basic Classification through an Elementary Science Unit on Food.
Schubert, Nancy A.
Five lesson plans are included in this unit designed to teach basic classification skills through the study of food. Each lesson plan contains an objective, list of materials needed, statement of the lesson problem, instructional strategies, learning outcomes, and evaluation method(s). Objectives of the lessons include: (1) grouping common animals eaten as food into three major categories; (2) identifying/grouping various vegetables as specific portions of a plant; (3) distinguishing fruits from vegetables; (4) naming various seeds that are eaten, including seeds that are ground into flour or used for cereals after shapes have been changed (for example, oats); and (5) reading ingredients from labels and telling the specific food groups they fit into.
