Healthy Eating Lessons

Five a Day – What’s the big deal? This great set of fun and engaging resources for middle and high school students. A great set of resources to introduce your learners to the importance of the 5 groups of healthy eating options. These resources will probably run over 5-6 weeks depending on your learners. A great addition to your literacy centers and stations; low prep.


There are detailed teacher notes for suggestions on how best to run interactive sessions. Resources included consist of:


  • HTML presentation slides with activities

  • Interactive Matching Pairs Game (please note that the pdf version of the game has been replaced due to the pending withdrawal of Adobe Flash by the end of 2020)

  • Interactive HTML comprehension knowledge check question activity, based on a healthy eating video clip

  • Interactive & Printable Word Search Puzzle

  • Handouts & worksheets.

  • A digital certificate of achievement has also been provided

  • Detailed teacher notes

  • Interactive BONUS activity – includes user guide, instructions & access code. This bonus activity can be use with Find Them, Pairs & Swipe.



Some internet research is included. These resources encourage collaborative learning and include the suggested interaction & collaboration using a Padlet wall. You can offer alternative methods of collaborating, this is only a suggestion as it can be embedded into a VLE easily.


Stretch and challenge your learners to encourage them to take some ownership of their own learning.
