Title of Bulletin Board: Reading a Nutrition Label
Suggested Grade Level: 3-5
Materials: Food lables of several products
Task: Pick the Healthier Snack
The students were asked to examine the Nutritional Labels of two different snack foods. They had to show that they could transfer nutritional information accurately from the actual label to a blank food label. Then they determined which food is healthier based on all of the things we have learned about food.
Finally, the students had to write why one snack was healthier than the other.
