Children research the nutritional and health benefits of some foods, and present their findings as a PowerPoint presentation, poster presentation or trifold leaflet. It is essentially a science investigation combined with a literacy exercise. The presentation has the purpose of informing other children about the nutritional or health benefits of one of four food types and may take one of three forms.
For the design challenge, they must consider criteria such as: a product which is attractive for other children and young people, clear about its nutritional benefits., packaged in a way that protects the food before it’s eaten and the protects environment once it’s been thrown away.
Originally designed as part of a STEM based competition, this works wonderfully well as a challenging, multi faceted lesson in its own right. Thank you to Farmvention for allowing us to share it.
