Students will apply their knowledge of healthy eating to build a functioning village with farms and crops that promote healthy eating for students.
December 27, 2017
What makes us healthy? Where does our food come from? What should we eat?
Students apply knowledge of different food groups such as proteins, carbohydrates and fats. What foods are good for our bodies as we grow? How can we get the balance between everyday foods and occasional foods right?
Students brainstorm healthy foods and categorise them into food groups such as carbohydrates, proteins, sugars etc.
They then think about where our food comes from e.g., a free-range chicken farm provides us with eggs and good lean protein. In groups, students collaborate and plan an aspect of a healthy food village.
Students will need to plan their build, e.g., how big will it be? Students return and share ideas with the whole group and think critically to examine each groups' ideas and make decisions about what to include- giving constructive feedback to each other (Link to 21st century learning skills)
Students then build it in a minecraft world.
Students must collaborate and be good digital citizens.
Explain and justify their choices of what they have included in the healthy village
Problem solve and communicate effectively with group members
Self-regulate their learning
Demonstrate the planning process in a manner of their choosing - paper, signs in Minecraft etc.
Take photographs of the building process
