Students use these durable parachutes with food groups from the MyPlate program in a variety of beanbag activities. Interactive nutrition games make it more exciting to learn and promote teamwork!
Enhance Learning and Excitement
Games featured in this pack encourage students to think about food groups and portion sizes. One game involves laying all beanbags on the floor, and then students race to grab and place them in the appropriate area of their parachute. The team with the most correctly-placed beanbags wins.
During another game, one player picks up a beanbag, calls out what it is and which food group it belongs to, then tosses it on a parachute. Players holding the parachutes work together to get that beanbag to the correct food group on the parachute. The team with the most beanbags in the correct spot at the end of the game wins.
Durable, Easy-to-Use Equipment
Each 6' dia NutriChute includes handles for easy gripping and allows students to properly space themselves around it. A mesh center helps with airflow and prevents beanbags from falling through. Parachutes are divided into the 5 food groups that correspond with MyPlate. The beanbags have a vinyl cover for extra durability.
Pack includes 4 NutriChute parachutes, 100 healthy and unhealthy beanbags, activity instructions, and a medium mesh bag.
