2.     A “Dangerous food” table

Individual work

Choose a partner. You will go and read the article at this internet address: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/health/1429830.stm and your partner will read the article at this one:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/health/conditions/toothdecay2.shtml

When there is an unfamiliar word that makes you lose the general meaning of the sentence, you can check the word in this on-line dictionary:

http://dictionary.cambridge.org/

(A tip for the table you have to make: eating too many sweets could damage your teeth.)

4.     A healthy suggestion

Group work

  Firstly, go to this internet address:

http://www.nutritionexplorations.org/kids/activities/monster2.asp

You have 10 minutes for the game, but you have also to answer the bonus questions.

Then go to this one:

http://mypyramid.gov/kids/kids_game.html#

There you will find “My Pyramid Blast Off Game”. You have 10 minutes for this game, too.

Then you have to form a group, to choose one of the topics: “breakfast”, “lunch”, “snacks”, “dinner”, activities”. One person from the group has to write down the suggestions. You could look for some visual materials to make your suggestion look better, because in the next lesson you have to present it.
