I have been working on a nutrition unit in my grade 6 Health Education class. This is a great resource and a way to do some cross-curricular lesson planning. Awesome, thank you!

This is an excellent unit. Supporting materials can be added, but it is a good stand alone. I disagree that it is below grade level.

I have used this resource with a group of childcare students to improve their note takiing abilities and develop their writing skills.I did not use all the pack. We watched the film, had discussions around the advantages and disadvantages of fast food; we did active learning group work on the history of fast food where each group was given some information to summarise and then had to report to another group with their findings. I have then had sessions on group work to work on a strong opening paragragh and then sessions on using topic sentences and linking words to develop their writing. To finish they have drafted and typed up their work. We are now about to have formal and informal discussions on what they consider to be the main issues which will enable them to complete the speaking and listening component of their functional skills exam. So brilliant! Thank you!
