So I'm volunteering some of my time to a local elementary school to teach a nutrition class twice a month. The students are k-5. I need to develop my own lesson plan and each session should be about 45 mins to an hour.
Difficulties I see are developing a lesson plan that gets the kids to think but not go over their head. Also, don't want to go super super basic and bore the fifth graders to death but I can't go too complicated and lose the younger kids. I have a lot of freedom with this so I'm trying to get creative. Class size is roughly a dozen kids.
My first lesson plan I was thinking of showing the kids how to avoid processed foods and make good food choices (exm. choosing an apple over an apple pop tart/pastry)
Has anybody ever done anything like this? If you're a parent what would you like your young ones to learn? Any advice appreciated
