Are you unsure about how to eat healthily? Do you find all the messages about food and nutrition confusing?
Good nutrition is essential for everyone, but it’s especially important for growing teenagers.
The idea behind this workshop is to provide students with a basic knowledge they can later apply to their everyday lifestyle, improving their essential life skills by giving them the right tools, information and opportunity to change incorrect habits, for example by reading food labels to make healthy choises or being able to plan a health-related physical activity.
In the last part of the work you can find some examples of innovative strategies to propose this topic to students, for example Cooperative learning, Role playing or Gamification. The use of these strategies, especially in combination with e-sources, is a great way to meet students’ individual needs and to make a classroom a dynamic and motivational environment for them.
