Teaching Food at Higher Levels

Just because your students have moved beyond learning the names of common fruit and vegetables does not mean they cannot get something out of a food unit.

I’ve copied a page on anti-cancer foods from New York Times Bestseller Food Your Miracle Medicine by Jean Carper, for non-commercial, educational purposes only. It discusses what you would eat if you were a newborn infant and could eat right the rest of your life to avoid cancer.  Click on the image of the book to download the reading.

The following worksheet asks students to fill in the foods from the article in the correct categories. It’s a challenging assignment to complete, because of the complex sentence structure in the reading. Click on the image below to download it. Let me know how it works in your classroom!
