6th grade GAT – Think-like a Nutritionist (Sept 2017)

Recently, the Health classes of Mr. Gabriel and Mr. Page participated in a project where they had to focus on one of the six essential nutrients (protein, fats, carbohydrates, water, vitamins, and minerals) we all need in our diets. Students were allowed to work solo or in pairs and had a choice of end products, which included creating a billboard, drafting a comic book, or creating a rap song. No matter the chosen project, students were to make clear what their assigned nutrient happened to be, foods that the nutrient may be found in, mention the benefits of proper consumption or risks of limited consumption of their specific nutrient, and were asked to be creative and have fun. To listen to a couple of the raps, head over to our 6th-grade page on our website: 6th-grade activities.
