Carla Frohloff's curator insight, February 28, 2014 12:25 AM

The original source of this website is Nourish Interactive, a web based company that aims to promote individuals to eat healthier. This website provides a lesson plan with links to interactive activities that aim to develop the students’ knowledge and understanding of food and nutrition as well as food selection and preparation.

 

This resource would be effective in addressing both the Technologies and Health and Physical Education learning areas of the Australian Curriculum. For instance, students will address the personal, social, community and health strand of HPE when they engage with the interactive food pyramid and explore the recommended intake of each food group. From these activities students will develop knowledge and understanding of nutritional principles to enable them to make healthy food choices. Students will continue to address the HPE learning area as well as the design and technologies strand of Technologies when they apply this information to the development of meal plans for specific purposes and consumers. From this, students will learn how food from different groups can be combined and prepared to create healthy meals.This will address the HPE content descriptor for Years 5 and 6 which states "practice strategies to promote health and wellbeing" (ACARA, 2014, p. 5). Students will also address the Technologies content descriptor for Years 5 and 6 which states "investigate the role of food preparation in maintaining good health" (ACARA, 2014, p.3). 

 

In my opinion, this is a great resource for educators to use to link the Australian Curriculum: Technologies with Health and Physical Education which in turn, will allow students to see the relationship between the two learning areas.

This is a great lesson plan sequence for students to the age of 13. In planning the meals students would be asked to show modifications to recipes based on dietary requirements such as diabetes or weight loss. The teacher would need to slightly modify the activities to suit the age requirements for older students. The  nutritional dictionary provides an interactive aspect to the lesson and helps to build and establish key words when learning about healthy eating.

Eugene Seddon's curator insight, March 10, 2014 9:32 PM

The webpage Food; A Fact Of Life has the intent of assisting Health and Physical Education teachers in sourcing information from a healthy eating and lifestyle website. Food - a fact of life provides a wealth of free resources about healthy eating, cooking, food and farming for children and young people aged 3 to 16 years. There are many different tabs and links to follow that covers content descriptors with the H.P.E KLA on the ACARA website including Planning and practicing strategies to promote healthy eating, safety and wellbeing and also opportunities to Investigate community resources and strategies to seek help about health, safety and wellbeing. These are exemplified from there site via the cook coach and healthy eating week tabs. educators also have the opportunity to link the H.P.E strand and target the digital technologies strand of Technologies by having students create stories that is available to complete that is with lesson activities, videos, worksheets and IWB activities. This website also allows educators to use technology via video podcasts that focus on different aspects of food and nutrition. Each episode is hosted by a Nutrition Scientist presenting current information on healthy eating and nutrition. This website is a terrific page that provides information to promote and plan for healthy eating for educators that also links’ Technologies with Health and Physical Education within the Australian curriculum.
