Students will already have assumptions about nutrients and food groups when it comes time for this unit, and it can be helpful for them and you to keep track of what they think or know coming in and what they learned by the end. Using a KWL chart is a perfect way to track progress and identify any misconceptions that students may have upon entering the lesson!
Students can keep this worksheet and hand it in at the end of the unit, or they can fill out the first two boxes and then hand it in. This second way allows you to see what students are excited about learning and what they already know so that you can tailor what you're teaching to them. Then, pass the chart back and have students complete the third section to use as a review of the unit!
Clicking "Use This Assignment" will copy the worksheet into your teacher account. This worksheet can be scaffolded and customized as desired in order to tailor it to your students. Feel free to add a fourth section to turn the worksheet into a KWHL chart! Once you've finished editing, just save and print it for students to fill out.
(These instructions are completely customizable. After clicking "Copy Activity", update the instructions on the Edit Tab of the assignment.)
