Kids Food CyberClub. Teacher's Guide. First Edition.
This guide is designed to help teachers educate students to be healthier now and in the future. It presents fun, learner-centered activities about nutrition, food, hunger, and food sources. It offers an overview of each section of the Kids Food CyberClub web site, and classroom activities teachers can use to expand on information students will learn by participating in the Web site activities. The guide is organized in a logical sequence, but students should access the sections of the web site in the order they choose. Students are taught lifestyle habits to help them maintain their health and lead a full life. Activities on the web site and corresponding classroom activities develop skills in many subject areas beyond health and nutrition. The guide includes descriptions of each web site section and suggested classroom activities related to the section. Topics include: Finding Your Way on the Kids Food CyberClub Web site; Foods Keep Us Well; USDA Food Guide Pyramid; Rate Your Plate; Choices, Choices, Choices; Grow It Yourself; Books I Love To Read; Your Recipes, Please; Hunger in Our Land; Food Advertising; and Food Facts. Two appendixes offer worksheets for classroom activities and nutrition information for teachers. (SM)
