A Case of Waste. Nutrition Comes Alive. Level 6. Nutrition Educator's Guide and Work Sheets, Information Sheets, Letter to Parents. Revised Edition.
Farrell, Tracy J.
This guide offers a nutrition education program for students in Kindergarten through Grade 6. Activities span all grades as well as activities for the specific level. Nutrition education objectives are stated for each grade level: (1) grade four--students will explore how to balance food intake and energy output for overall health and physical fitness; (2) grade five--students will be motivated to eat nutritious foods because they understand why the human body needs certain nutrients to function; and (3) grade six--students will become motivated to conserve food and food-related resources. An explanation is given of what the students should understand about the objective for each level. The activities for Grade 6: (1) provide students with "hands-on" activities to learn about why and how much edible food is thrown away; (2) focus on the energy needed to produce, process, package, transport, and prepare food; and (3) explore the ecological consequences of food waste. A supplement to this guide contains worksheets, a letter for parents, and recipes. A Spanish translation of the letter for parents is provided. (JD)
