Nutrition and Exercise During Pregnacy

Curriculum Tie:

Time Frame:
1 class period that runs 45 minutes.


From the day you were born, you began preparing yourself to become a parent. Preparation for parenthood does not begin when a couple decides to have a baby. It is a life long process that involves good eating habits and physical health which will someday influence your children.

Main Curriculum Tie:
Child Development
Strand 3 Standard 3

Discuss the importance of early and on-going prenatal care.

Instructional Procedures:
Use the powerpoint presentation as a lecture guide on nutrition and exercise during pregnancy. Other attachments are information on above presentation. Lecture usually takes 30-45 minutes depending on student discussion and questions. This is also when I use the empathy belly to demonstrate the weight gain and difficult movement that are experienced during pregnancy.
