This colorful, easy-to-play game helps students learn the portion sizes recommended by the USDA’s MyPyramid.
The laminated bingo cards show foods and drinks that fall into six categories:
- meat and beans
- oils and discretionary calories
The teacher reads a clue card (for example, “A ‘mini’ one of these dense rolls shaped in a ring equals 1 oz. of grains. A large one equals 4 oz.”), after which participants guess the item (bagel) and cover its picture if it appears on their cards.
Contents: 30 bingo cards (8½” x 11″), 60 clue cards, master list, directions. Players: 230. Appropriate for grades 6 – adult. 2006.
