Choosing Foods for You10 lessons

Students analyze how social influences like family, media and peers affect body image. They also learn that physical activity is part of a healthy lifestyle. Each lesson contains learning objectives, supplies needed, core activities and additional activities. Lessons have been cross-referenced with the Missouri Grade Level Expectations and National Health Standards. Classroom handouts are included.
