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".
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.
Learn about the "My Pyramid" food guide! This mini-unit features a reading comprehension, Venn diagram, and several short answer and essay writing prompts, designed to promote understanding and creative thinking.
