Activity Overview

Creating a food log is a great way for students to think about their own diet and have them think visually about what makes a balanced and healthy diet. Using a chart, students will create clear and concise food logs that illustrate what they have eaten over the course of two days. As well as using Photos for Class and the food items on Storyboard That, students can also photograph their food over two days and upload these images into Storyboard That.

To stretch some of your more advanced students, have students decide whether the log represents a healthy balanced diet or not. Then get students to suggest ways to improve their diet, potentially in pairs or small groups.
