Arianna’s Nutrition Expedition in English is a program developed by the National Dairy Council. The unit has 9 lessons focusing on the health benefits of each food group, multi-cultural and combination foods, meal planning, and food advertising. Using a story about Arianna to link the lessons, students “travel” the world learning about nutrition. The kit includes a large set of food-picture cards with nutrition information on the back that can be used for sorting and math activities. Additional kit materials: computer games on CDs (or go online in the computer lab), a poster, overhead transparencies, and a set of blacklines available for printing.
Camp Eatawella’ Nutrition Pathfinder in Spanish is from the California Dairy Council. The unit has 5 lessons with a focus on nutrition, analyzing influences from media and friends, the importance of breakfast, meal planning, and the relationship of physical activity to health. Additional kit materials: CD’s with extension ideas, and a set of student workbooks. Please don’t allow students to write in the workbooks; instead you can order a replacement set at $18 for 32 (see website below).
