What are the food groups and how much should we eat?
You and your partner are going to make a powerpoint to explain each food group, why we need to eat food from that food group, how much of each food group we need to eat, and examples of food from this group.

When you think you have enough information, have your teacher check your worksheet. When you are given permission, you may start your presentation. Your teacher will show you how to make a PowerPoint. Remember to always put all your information on your presentation first, then pictures, and finally animation if you have time.
