This game provides students with additional information
regarding what nutrients can do for their bodies in a fun, active way.
all the students sit in a group in the center of the classroom or gym, moving
the desks out of the way. On one side of the classroom or gym, post a “YES”
sign. On the opposite side of the classroom or gym, post a “NO” sign.
the students that you will read them a question about a nutrient, then have
them stand under the sign that they think is most correct, YES or NO. They have a
choice of either running, walking, skipping, crab-walking, twirling,
giant-stepping, etc. to each sign.This
will promote physical activity for the child.
you tell them the correct answer, you may want to mention what specific
nutrient enhances the activity mentioned.Additionally, you might want to provide an example of a food that
contains that nutrient.
the second question of the game, have the students get into the center of the
gym again. Tell the students the second
this for all thirteen questions.
*This game works best
as detailed above in a large classroom, gym, or hallway—anywhere with a generous
amount of space. It allows the students to run, skip, twirl, etc., to the sign of
their choice. If space is limited, instead of having the students go to the
sign of their choice for each question, give them each two signs.One sign should say “YES” and one sign should
say “NO.” Have them hold up the sign of their choice for each question.
