A Fun Way to Learn About Nutrition

Posted by on 18 February 2009

I’ve been making alot of games lately.  Whenever I’m not teaching kiddo, cleaning or spending time with The Man, I’m creating games.  I seem to be on a roll right now.  I don’t know if they’re any good or not.  I don’t even know if people are using them.  It doesn’t matter because I’m making them!!

My latest game is about nutrition.  Miss K and I are both trying to eat healthier and, if possible, lose a few pounds in the process.  So far, she’s lost 5 lbs and unfortunately I remain the same.  Since I teach her nutrition as part of Life Skills and also Health, I decided to make a fun game for review or just to have fun with.  I also added a Christian slant to it so that my groups could use the file folder game (ffg) as well.  The ffg is called “Body by God, Nutrition by Me”.  

Below are the links to each page of the ffg.  I created it in DOC format, but converted it to JPG for easier printing and access for others.  There are some blank cards to add Christian questions or your own questions about nutrition.  You WILL need EVERY page to have the complete game!!

I hope you enjoy!!

(Each image is a seperate page – you will need all of them – print one of each page except the pyramid tokens, which you will need to print as many as needed for the number of players – the food pyramid charts are just for reference)

    I want a game called “Hubby Finishes His Thesis”

    Spaces could be:

    Take a shower today.
    Shave today.
    Get dressed for a change.
    Burn jammies.

    Wow! Seeing it all in one place is nice. Very colorful! And did I mention yummy looking? 🙂

      There is some good looking clipart!! I had it all for the menus that I make for Miss K to play restaurant with. There’s even more, but I woud have never stopped, so I cut it off with just those!! LOL

    taking a break from remodeling and checking in with online friends –

    Wow! You’ve been busy – very creative – I read a few of the questions and decided I needed to play the game to learn what I didn’t know 😉

      I have been quite busy. To ask some close to me, they say I like it that way. I’ll never admit to it though. Glad you like the game and I hope that you do play it. It’s a pretty fun way to learn!!
