February is Children's Dental Health month, but any time of year is appropriate for this unit, which includes a reading comprehension, and several science experiments perfectly designed to get children interested in the health of these "visible bones".
"It is important to make good choices. A good choice is one that has a good consequence. One important good choice you can make is the choice to be drug free. Look at the choices below. Fill in more good choices in the chart."
A one page reading comprehension on the history and nutritional value of the potato, with completion questions, critical thinking exercises, a word search puzzle of related vocabulary, and a research writing prompt.
This unit is a great enhancement to a nutrition lesson, and also works well as a "stand alone". Based on the 2005 food pyramid guide, and featuring imaginative writing prompts, real-life nutrition analysis, graphing, and more.
