    Materials:

    Set#1: 42 cards (photo and translation) Download pdf


    Set#2: 42 cards (photo and nutrient composition) Download pdf

     

    Process:

    Step1

    Create little groups (3-4-5 students)
    Deliver Set#1 to each group
    Task: “gather the cards in categories”
    Whole class synthesis on magnetic or interactive board
    Problem: you can classify food with logic: (egg-chicken) (milk-beef-veal) (milk-soda-oil), but some foods remain and you must class them in a catchall category

    Step2

    Create little groups (3-4-5 students)
    Deliver Set#2 to each group
    Task: which card can represent the best each category?
    (fat->oil / carbohydrates->sugar / protein->tuna)
    Task: “gather the cards in categories”
    Whole class synthesis on magnetic or interactive board
    Some vegetables (pulses) contain proteins. They can be grouped with meat (fish-egg) in a “protein group”
    The other “vegetables” have a similar composition as “fruits”
    The milk products, «Dairy group” contain protein but also a lot of fat
    Food from the “grain group” (Bread, rice, potatoes, pasta) is high in carbohydrates and low in fat
    The catchall category contains the foods and drinks high in fat and/or sugar to use sparingly
