Introduction:
My Personal Pyramid
Patricia Henry phenry@

My personal pyramid is the introductory lesson in a nutrition unit that will span several weeks. The unit will introduce students to the basics of good nutrition. Although it is geared for 5th grade students, it is easily modified for many grade levels.

In this webquest lesson My Personal Pyramid, students will explore 3 different food pyramids: 2 from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and 1 from the Mayo clinic. They will create a mini-poster of a food pyramid of their own design.

This lesson was developed through TeacherTECH, the teacher professional development component of GirlTECH, which is sponsored by the Center for Excellence and Equity in Education (CEEE) with support from the National Science Foundation through EPIC.

Thanks to Bernie Dodge who creates and maintains the WebQuest Page.
