Our Food Groups lesson plan introduces the students to the five food groups using the USDA My Plate recommendations. During this lesson, students are asked to review a provided grocery store flyer, cut apart at least 5 images for each food group, glue each of the images inside the correct food group box, and answer the associated questions. Students are also asked to place the names of the provided foods into the correct food groups below to demonstrate their understanding of the lesson.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to define the five basic food groups and identify examples of foods for each group, and list benefits for each of the five groups.
