Nutrition Lapbook

February 8, 2009

I am working on creating a FREE lapbook to go with Janice VanCleave’s Food and Nutrition for Every Kid: Easy Activities That Make Learning Science Fun

Janice VanCleaves’ Food and Nutrition for Every Kid is a book I scheduled in Otter’s Science for weeks 19-24. It’s a great book, but I could see that Otter was having a hard time retaining some of the concepts and new vocabulary. I decided to help him out by creating the materials below. Now he can tell you all sorts of things about monosaccarides and what one of the jobs of the hypothalmus is, etc.! I love how lapbooking helps information stick!

As I create the lapbooking materials, I will continue to add them to the site printables. I’ve created a page for this lapbook here.

Chapter 1

Macronutrients, micronutrients, Mr. Hypothalamus

Chapter 2

Monosaccharides and Disaccharides


Examples of Monosaccharides and Disaccharides

Carbohydrates are fuel!

Chapter 3

Fats chart with cut & paste squares

Chapter 4

Protein wheel


More printables are coming soon for the other chapters! I will post them as I finish making them for Otter. Check back on the blog here or on the page I made specifically for this lapbook.
