Fuel Your Game Day – Every Day Is Game Day
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).
Student assignments and activities provided will underscore lesson content, including the Designing Your Game Plan activity. As students move through lesson content, they will design and develop their own personal Game Plan for the school year, being sure to leave room for journaling and reflection.
