In this lesson: Mind and Body Connectedness


Release date: February 1, 2022

Students learn new skills that connect social and emotional learning and the practice of healthy eating; lessons will ask students to reflect on how a particular food makes them feel and why (i.e. calm, energized), how they feel when hungry vs. full, and how a healthy diet influences how they feel. Students will learn about various vitamins and minerals, how they support different areas of the body, and how they are connected to the various activities that they do throughout the day (such as learning!). 

Opportunities for applied learning include the “Read the Label” activity — students analyze ingredients of various food sources (up to 10 different food labels, including milk, cheese and yogurt) to determine what the ingredients do to, and for, the foods analyzed.
