Nutrition Book

This week in First Grade were studying nutrition. When I set out to build this unit I scoured the internet for ideas, and holy schmooley!!!!! There are a TON of fantastic resources for teaching nutrition on the WWW!
Unfortunately, my little nutrition unit is seriously smothered by time, so I had to compile a little bit of all of the resources I found into a small (okay, 18 page) book instead of using any online units. Hope it will help you!
And now for my own investigation of the little science called nutrition, I am going to explore the yummy looking cupcake on my desk...!!!
Happy eating!

I would love to see your nutrition unit, but when I click on the link it says the document is not available.

Goodness gracious, me! I am so terribly sorry that the link didn't work!
I tried creating a new link. If that doesn't work, just shoot me an email and I'll send you a copy of the book using good old fashioned email!

I also plan to put up a little food group sort and activity to go with this book as soon as I can get back to my precious little school computer! Just FYI :)

Sorry again! Have a GREAT night!

I really love your nutrition book! I write nutrition lesson plans for homeschoolers in upper elementary & middle school. I've posted on my blog about your awesome nutrition book for the younger siblings of my homeschoolers. You've done a beautiful job with this. Thanks for sharing! Oh, and here's a link to the post I did about your book:

Nutrition (also called nourishment or aliment) is the provision, to cells and organisms, of the materials necessary (in the form of food) to support life. Many common health problems can be prevented or alleviated with a healthy diet.

Thanks for the great nutrition unit. It is just what I was looking for to start my studies on healthy eating!

If possible, could you please send me a copy at ryannoteboom@gmail.com. This looks like it will be a great resource for our nutrition studies! Thanks

It's just Me said...

I think the book has great content but it disappoints me that there isn't proper sentence structure or capitalization. Drives me crazy when my first graders don't capitalize the word "I", let alone a teacher resource!

Alexandra Thiessen said...

I actually agree completely It's Just Me. Valuable feedback and an oversight on my part.

Thanks for the constructive criticism!!

Hi This link is not working for me. It only loads 4 pages and then stops. I really love the first four pages so I'm hoping to be able to get the rest. Thank you

Here is another educational post about nutrition. It's more than simply necessary to follow all those strict directions to be strong and healthy for the rest of your life!

Oh! Thank you so much for this little book! I am getting together a tiny nutrition course together for my Homeschool Preschool/Kindergarten boys and this is just perfect for them! I especially love that it's in black and white so my non-color printer will do a fine job at printing and my kids can just color their hearts out! So far, for our little nutrition week we've read through "Why Do We Eat" Usborne book (I don't have the collection of Usborne, just this one I found at a consignment sale for $0.75!), and I'm going to let my kids make grocery lists and go shopping with some of their own money (that's what I call a win/win!) Thanks again!
