  1. Researching Recipes:A Sixth Grade WebQuest on the Food Pyramid Kristen McClafferty ~ km4654@desales.edu

  2. Introduction Task Process Resources Evaluation Conclusion Teacher Page Introduction America needs YOUR help! The MyPyramid recipe research committee went on strike! This group is responsible for finding healthy recipes for American citizens. Do you know enough about foods in the five food groups to be able to help MyPyramid and save the general welfare of the American people?

  3. Introduction Task Process Resources Evaluation Conclusion Teacher Page Task This WebQuest is to help you understand what food groups are a part of MyPyramid. It will give you ideas to use at home, so you can have a well-balanced diet. You will visit different websites and gather recipes from each of the food groups. You will use these to compile a class cookbook.

  4. Introduction Task Process Resources Evaluation Conclusion Teacher Page Process There will be 5 groups of 4 students. The orange group is the grain group, the green group is the vegetable group, the red group is the fruit group, the blue group is the milk group, and the purple group is the meat and beans group. Inside each group, therewill be 3 recipe researchers and 1 layout designer. Here is what each student must do: • Recipe Researcher: Each recipe researcher must find 2 recipes for his/her food group. As a group of 3, you must find 6 different recipes: 1 for breakfast, 1 for lunch, 1 for a snack, 1 for dinner, and 1 for dessert. These 3 students will decide amongst themselves who will find which recipes. • Each group must also have 1 recipe from the oils subgroup that is found on MyPyramid. The grain group will find a breakfast recipe including oil(s),the vegetable group will find a lunch recipe including oil(s), the fruit group will find a snack recipe including oil(s), the milk group will find a dinner recipe including oil(s), and the meat and beans group will find a dessert recipe including oil(s).

  5. Introduction Task Process Resources Evaluation Conclusion Teacher Page Process • Layout Designer: The Layout Designer will copy and paste all 6 recipes into a Microsoft Publisher document. They should be in order: breakfast, lunch, snack, dinner, and dessert. (The oils recipe should be on a separate page, with at least 1 appropriate picture.) There should be 2 recipes on the first 2 pages, and 1 recipe on the last page. The first 2 pages should include at least 2 appropriate pictures, and the last page should include at least 1 appropriate picture. Also, this individual will design a title page for his/her food group. This page should include your food group, your food group’s motto from MyPyramid, which can be found on the 3rdResources page, and at least 5 different foods that belong to your food group (which can also be found on the 3rdResources page). (I will design a title page for oils, because it doesn’t have a motto). This page should also have at least 1 appropriate picture. E-mail me your portion of the cookbook when you are finished. I will print them out for the entire class and send a copy to MyPyramid!

  10. Introduction Task Process Resources Evaluation Conclusion Teacher Page Conclusion If you worked hard and followed the guidelines I laid out for you, you should now have your very own class cookbook! Take it home and share it with your friends and family members. This cookbook includes a week’s worth of recipes that you can make together. Remember to eat from all food groups every day!

  11. Introduction Task Process Resources Evaluation Conclusion Teacher Page Teacher Page This WebQuest encourages students to work together to achieve a common goal. It also serves to help students apply the government’s food regulations, from MyPyramid, to their daily diets. It addresses the following Pennsylvania Academic Standard: • Family & Consumer Sciences • 11.3. Food Science and Nutrition • 11.3.6. GRADE 6 • D. Describe a well-balanced daily menu using the dietary guidelines and the food guide pyramid. Additional Resources: • MyPyramid • The Food Guide Pyramid
