This game is all about eating a bit of each food group as part of a healthy balanced diet. Each player has a game card (the one with the food group on) and then the other cards (food cards and definitions) are put in a pile. Each player takes turns to pick a card and the winner is the one who fills up their game card.
A simple PowerPoint Presentation and differentiated worksheets to introduce the main food groups. The children can then use what they have learnt to explain the notion of a balanced diet.I have uploaded the worksheets in Word format so they can be edited if needed.
This is a student led SOLO lesson to recap/mass teach about the importance of a balanced diet and the food groups. It is self differentiating and requires the use of iPads or technology that can scan QR codes.
Starter (10 Minutes):
Remind students that we looked at food groups and balanced diets last lesson and today we are going to secure and apply our knowledge to solve some medical mysteries, they will be the doctors! Explain that they will complete a series of activities to prepare them to become diet doctors. Work through the SOLO actions with them and explain that if they can do the task, they are allowed to make the action for it at the end of the lesson
Main task (45 Minutes):
Give out the solo checksheets and ask students to begin the task starting at the pre-structural in their books and working their way down. Have the remainder of the tasks scattered at stations around the room.
Marking and monitoring is easy for the teacher – as soon as the student completes the task for each level, an adult (teacher or TA/LSA) must check and sign it off on the SOLO checksheet before they can progress onto the next task. This is a self differentiating lesson as students will only complete the task they are capable of.
Plenary (5 minutes):
Return students to desks and ask them to use their SOLO sheets to help them identify the tasks they have done and the action they are allowed to do. Studnets to show you the action they can do before packing up.
