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.
