#Lesson1FoodGroups

In this Food Groups KS2 DT lesson, your Year 3 class will explore each of the different food groups, finding out which types of food each contains and how much of each they should be eating to form a healthy diet. They will then start to relate this to sandwiches and consider which ingredients comprise a healthy, balanced sandwich.

During their independent learning time, they can then carry out a survey to find out about the class' favourite sandwiches and convert their tally charts into graphs. Alternatively, they can design a healthy menu for a sandwich shop!

They will then spend some time generating some adjectives to describe the taste, smell, texture and appearance of food.

Then comes the fun bit! Your class will have the chance to taste test some different breads and/or sandwiches, noting down their thoughts about the taste, texture, smell and appearance of each item.
