Science for first graders: Healthy Foods

Objective: To introduce first graders to the concept of healthy foods and the importance of eating a balanced diet.

Materials: - Pictures or flashcards of various healthy foods (fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins, dairy products) - Poster board or whiteboard - Markers or colored pencils - Worksheets or coloring pages related to healthy foods

Introduction: 1. Begin by asking the students if they know what healthy foods are. Write their responses on the board or poster board. 2. Explain that healthy foods are foods that are good for our bodies and help us grow strong and stay healthy. 3. Show the pictures or flashcards of various healthy foods and ask the students to identify them. Discuss the different food groups (fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins, dairy products) and their importance.

Activity 1: Sorting Healthy Foods 1. Divide the students into small groups or pairs. 2. Give each group a set of pictures or flashcards of healthy foods. 3. Instruct the students to sort the foods into different categories based on the food groups discussed earlier (fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins, dairy products). 4. After sorting, have each group share their categories with the class and discuss any differences or similarities.

Activity 2: My Healthy Plate 1. Draw a large circle on the board or poster board to represent a plate. 2. Divide the circle into sections to represent the different food groups (fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins, dairy products). 3. Ask the students to suggest specific healthy foods that belong in each section and write them down. 4. Discuss the importance of having a balanced plate with foods from each group. 5. Have the students draw their own healthy plate on a worksheet or coloring page, labeling each section with a food from that group.

Conclusion: 1. Review the concept of healthy foods and the importance of eating a balanced diet. 2. Ask the students to share one new thing they learned about healthy foods. 3. Encourage the students to try incorporating more healthy foods into their meals and snacks.

Note: It is important to consider any allergies or dietary restrictions among the students when discussing and providing examples of healthy foods.
