  1. What does this outcome mean?

To me, this outcome means taking a closer look at the eating habits of each student.

  1. What are three activities that could help students understand this outcome?

– Have students record their daily food intake on a chart or in their journals. Ask them to be creative in this recording, such as pictures, drawing, flyer clippings, ect.

– Give students a project to identify how different kinds of food or diets effect the body(good or bad). Example: Processed vs. non-processed, Cultural foods, vegetarian, diets

– Have students bring in their favorite snacks to read the food labels and compare with other students. Sort out ingredients that are considered healthy or not healthy food choices.

  1. What are three assessment that could help students demonstrate their understanding of this outcome?

– Have students hand in their food chart and journal questions to see what they thought about their own intake.

– Have students present their projects to the class to showcase their finds and how they identified the effects on the body.

– Have students get into groups and come with healthy and non healthy ingredients from their snacks. Have students submit an exit slip of 5 ingredients they identified and what category the fall under.

  1. What is another indicator that you could add to the list?

– How do other countries – where food is not easily accessible, maintain a healthy diet. What are some of their staple foods.
