Lesson- “Becoming a Nutrient” – students will work in small groups to research a specific nutrient or topic related to nutrients. Students will design a visual aid over their assigned topic. They must have a script for their group and speak as though they are the nutrient, must dress as the nutrient and they can provide a sample of food or drink that represents their nutrient. The research activity will take one day to complete. Presentations will take place the next the class meets.
Closure- Students will gather in a large circle and each student must state ONE fact only from the topic they researched.
