Combine Activity and Learning
This fun nutrition game incorporates healthy recipes and ideas into physical education classes. Students break into teams, look at their recipe card, and take turns gathering ingredient beanbags from the market mats. Recipe cards each have 3 meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) printed on them. The card clearly identifies the entrée and lists 3 ingredients that correspond with beanbags. Also included is a picture of the food with helpful cooking teams. This familiarizes students with healthy ingredients, cooking, and meal prep. Collect everything on your card, or complete the most cards in an allotted time, to win!
There are also game variations that include teams starting with and trading beanbags to complete their cards, or they can guess recipes based off the ingredient beanbags they are shown.
The mats are made of a 13 oz vinyl, making them resistant to tearing and about to hold up over time. Durable seams on the beanbags prevent tearing during game play. Recipe cards are made of a thick, laminated paper to prevent ripping. Shopping bags are made the same as reusable shopping bags found in grocery stores to provide a realistic feel. Store everything in the include mesh bag.
Pack includes 144 beanbags, 5 shopping bags, 30 recipe cards, 2 mats, 5 shopping list tablets, XXL mesh storage bag, and activity instructions.
