Power to Explore is a medieval themed program that helps students develop skills to make food and drink choices.

In this interactive teacher workshop, you will meet "Sir Wonderlaine", a medieval knight sent to present day to find the Platter of Power. Students will follow the knight and his modern day friends, exploring food and drink choices in medieval times - and make connections with their present day experiences.

 This interactive teacher workshop will include:

  • Training and a free copy of a teacher manual complete with lesson plans and bilingual student activity sheets
  • An electronic version of lessons to use on a Smartboard
  • Ideas for fun and healthy classroom snacks (and samples of course!)
  • A Make and Take – basic Measuring Station Kit
 
Nutrition is a cross-curricular topic. Meet outcomes in many other subjects while teaching nutrition.
