High School Lesson Plans

Feel free to use the lesson plans listed below in your own classroom to encourage your students to build healthier habits.

The following five lessons were part of a three year High School Outcome Evaluation  to evaluate the effectiveness of these lessons to positively impact the knowledge, behaviors, and attitudes of eligible students in regards to eating a variety of fruits and vegetables, low fat milk, and calcium-rich foods for meals and/or snacks and increased physical activity. These lessons should be taught in the following sequence:

  • Build a Healthy Plate
  • Fast Food: Figuring Out the Facts
  • Choosing Healthy Beverages
  • Calcium and Vitamin D
  • Understanding Energy Balance 

The remaining lessons can be taught as time allows.
