These resources have been curated to support the Food and Nutrition unit (grade 5 unit 3) of the K-5 Science Scope and Sequence. "The purpose of this unit is for students to learn how food, which is the main source of nutrients and energy, affects their growth and development."
The resources in this collection address the major understandings of this unit, such as, the necessity of nutritious food, exercise and rest to maintain good health, and how the health and growth of organisms is affected by their environment. Most of the resources are not grade level specific and can be adapted to address the specific needs of your students.
