Literature links for nutrition and health


Provides elementary teachers and teacher preparation faculty with an integrated curriculum model for teaching nutrition and health concepts to children in grades 1, 2, & 3. Twelve focused themes in five units use 227 picture books to teach about variety, moderation, energy, time, patterns, age, culture, behavior, and prevention. The National Health Education Standards are aligned to the literature-based units and a tri-assessment model is promoted. Twenty eight feature books are highlighted and supported by lessons which include questions using Bloom's Taxonomy, additional teaching connections called Across the Curriculum, and Solo Work, Small Group Work, and Whole Class Work for each lesson.
