Fuel Your Game Day – Every Day Is Game Day
In this UNIT: How Food Fuels Your Body
In this unit, students learn about the essential nutrients for sustaining health and energy - including calcium and vitamin D, which are part of dairy's 13 essential nutrients - and reaching macro- and micro-nutrient goals. They’ll learn about the variety of recommended physical activity types (aerobic and anaerobic, muscle-strengthening, bone-strengthening, and flexibility) and how certain foods ( like yogurt and kefir, as well as kimchi and others) relate to gut health (good bacteria vs. bad).
NEW LESSON ADDED! Lesson Four – The Science of Yogurt! In this lesson students learn about the fermentation process that goes in to making yogurt. The lesson includes step-by-step instructions for two engaging classroom demonstrations and stand-alone activities to incorporate hands-on learning opportunities for students.
