Healthy Eating Superhero Culminating Task
And here are some of my favourites from my class...they were all so good it was very hard to choose just a few to share! The written descriptions underneath are the ones submitted by my students. Love it!!
Healthy Girl- My superhero's special power is flying. It can help fight Unhealthy Eating Man because if Unhealthy Eating Man goes up in the sky and eats junk food Healthy Girl can still save him. It's gadgets are fruits and vegetables shooter, grain products shooter, milk products shooter and meat and alternatives shooter.
Amazing Healthy Eater- My superhero's special power is that it can breathe out foods from the fruits and vegetables group. The gadgets are a grain products releaser, a meat and alternatives shoe that blows out meat and alternatives and show that blows out milk and alternatives. He fights Unhealthy Eating Man because all the super powers and gadgets blow out healthy foods the Unhealthy Eating Man accidentally eats them and kids also eat it.
Green Gal- My superhero has a gun that shoots broccoli so if the villain makes people eat junk food Green Gal could push it away by her broccoli gun. She can shoot meat and alternatives with her belt so she can knock the villain down. Her purse with her gadgets not only a purse but a sidekick that gives her advice to defeat villains.
Healthy Voltage- My superhero's special powers are that he can fly, run very fast, far jumping, unhealthy vision and x-ray vision because if Unhealthy Eating Man is trying to run away my superhero can use these powers to catch him. My superhero's gadgets are milk grenades, healthy pineapple gum, apple boomerang, sliced bananas, voltage carrots, plum blaster, orange peels and fruit explosion which all shoot our fruits and vegetables and healthy foods.
I really liked how this student included all the appropriate serving amounts on their poster. So well done!
