Field trip to the grocery store

Justified Field Trips :)

One of the new subjects we are working on this year is health.  So I decided to make our next field trip will focus on that, as so he headed to the grocery store. To prepare for the field trip, we discussed the importance of health, starting with what we eat.
We opted to use the USDA food pyramid.  I had my son write down on separate pages grains, vegetables, fruits, dairy, proteins (meat and beans), and fats. The goal for today will be to list 5 items under each category that is not processed and 5 more that are processed. 
On a separate page, we will write down 5 of his favorite foods and write down the ingredients that he is not familiar with and research them when we come back from our trip... this should be interesting :)
