Mastering the Game
The Food Heroes curriculum is versatile and is designed to be:
a full guided program taught over the course of a school year;
broken down into individual components of materials and topics that best suit your educational requirements and interests;
or uniquely assembled into kits of materials covering specific themes.
The curriculum has three segments of guided lesson plans, called “Quests”, in which students, teachers or parents accompany 5 Food Heroes. Together they overcome new challenges focused on different environmental and nutritional issues to discover how to save the world by making smart food and health choices.
At the end of their journey of unlocking the right combination of foods, becoming friends with nature, winning over food villains and all else in between, kids become Food Heroes themselves that eat with love for their own bodies, communities and the planet!
The Quests and teaching materials come in the form of lesson plans, worksheets, activities, game boards, flashcards, storybooks, journals etc. They can be used individually depending on the topic desired and are easily downloadable upon purchase. These over 160 teaching materials engage with STEM, Common Core Standards, the arts and physical activity.
Whether it is learning about our colourful biodiversity or important macronutrients; teaching STEM activities or arts; learning at school, online or at home, Food Heroes has all bases covered!
