Cognitive: The student will be able to recognize the different food groups of the MyPyramid, what they consist of, and the different healthful foods that belong in each group. Students will also be able to relate to the recommended daily servings values and compare them to their daily intake of each food group. Additionally, the student will be able to process new information that has been learned about the different food groups and how much of each group they should be consuming regularly each day, choosing the right diet, and incorporating a healthy eating plan into their lifestyle.

Affective: The student will be able to recognize their different emotions related to their healthy lifestyle.

Bulletin Board Contents
My bulletin board consists of a “Healthy Eating” title, as well as another poster that contrasts against the yellow backdrop. This poster is one that shows what the MyPyramid pyramid looks like as well as the daily recommended serving sizes, and the appropriate proportions for each group. Along the bottom of the board are descriptions of each of the food groups as they appear on the food pyramid; grains, vegetables, fruits, dairy, meats and beans, and oils. From each description, depending on the group, there are examples of the different foods that belong in that group, that ascend toward the title; eventually forming a pyramid.
