The student will be able to identify vitamins and minerals, their sources and functions in the body and deficiencies. They will know the importance of eating fruits and vegetables, the recommended number of servings and serving sizes, how to select, use and store them and the guidelines in preparing a food product to preserve the nutrients, color, flavor and texture.

Instructional Procedures

Home Assignment: Collect the home assignments for both the fruit and vegetable and samples.

Test: If time is available, let the students review their notes and ask questions prior to taking test. Hand out the test to each student.

Read and explain the test. The first part is especially confusing as it is a matching problem but with three columns. The first two columns are like any matching problem where you match column 1 with column 2. Then you ignore column 2 and its answers and then using the botanical names for fruits and vegetables in column 1 identify them as the botanical name for fruit or vegetable by circling the F or V in column 3.

Allow the students enough time to complete the test. When all of the tests are completed, orally correct the test using the red pencils or pens. Turn in the corrected tests before leaving to record the scores.
