Van der Vynckt, Susan; Barclay, Ellen
This guide provides an introduction to the "UNESCO Sourcebook for Classroom Nutrition Teaching-Learning," which is designed for both actual classroom use and as teacher-training support material, with lesson plans, teaching methods, and learning activities. Nutrition information is presented in such a way that important concepts are not limited to nutrition and health classes, but can also be integegrated into different subject areas within the general school curricula, including science, language arts, mathematics, social studies, and agriculture, as well as school meals. Lessons are provided in each subject area to cover related nutrition and health topics. This introduction to the Sourcebook first presents a brief list of some potential uses for the volume. The format of the book is described, and selected actual lesson plans from the Sourcebook are presented: (1) "Eating Good Food to be Healthy"; (2) "Night Blindness and Sick Eyes"; (3) "Eating Nutritious Foods for Healthy Eyes"; and (4) "Planning a School Garden." Appended are charts outlining the contents of the Sourcebook including topics and lesson presentations in each section. For each key topic, related lessons in other subject areas are indicated. (JD)
