Challenge your students on their food group knowledge with these thought-provoking cards! Cards are color-coded by food group, with each card containing a question related to that food group and the answer. Incorporate with any Skillastics® game, PE activity, or use alone as a teaching tool.
All cards come with instructions for a few different games. They can be used with existing Skillastics® games or as a standalone game.
For example: Nutritional Card Job pairs up students and places cards face-down in the center of a playing area. One partner walks or jogs in a circle around the cards while the other goes to retrieve a card, then walks back to his or her partner. While they are walking or jogging together, they read and answer the question. If they answer correctly, they put the card back and grab a new one. If they answer incorrectly, they keep the card. This continues for a predetermined amount of time. When time is called, students review the cards they answered incorrectly. There are several other variations for this game, including “everyone’s it.”
An example of a question on a card: Oils from plant sources (vegetable and nut oils) do not contain any cholesterol. True or False?
Convenient Storage and Organization
The cards come in a convenient box to store and transport them with ease. They also contain 6 smaller boxes on the inside, to help you keep each color neat and organized. These different colors (yellow, blue, green, red, orange, purple) make it easy to keep cards organized by food group.
