Topic: Food and Nutrition
A site that I found very useful when I did my Food and Nutrition unit in health and science was My Pyramid. There is a wealth of information for teachers as well for students. There is an activity, "Blast Off", for students to do that I would have them do that the very beginning of the unit and then again at the end to see how much better they do. It is set up to choose food and exercise for a day. There is a huge variety of options for each meal for them to choose and gives nutritional information each time a food is chosen. They also have the option sometimes to take away extras, for example, on popcorn for a snack, they can choose to not have butter on it. Each time a smart choice is made, they get a little congratulation message pop up.
This is a great site for students to use because it is so interactive, they are given all the power in terms of choice, and are given feedback for their choices.
