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).

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.  

"I have been able to pull out pieces of the lesson plans or activities and differentiate/customize them for my students and classes. The amount of information, guidance, tools, and printouts has been a lifesaver during the post-pandemic adjustment of bringing students back into schools."
