Approximately ten hours of 20-30 minute sessions
Lesson One: The children brainstorm ways to teach others about healthy choices for building personal health. They may find creative places and ways to advocate for and educate about healthy choices.
In Lesson Two, have students complete Handout 8: Healthy Foods! to assess their understanding of the food groups. For younger students, do the worksheet together, reading the questions and responses aloud with them.
