Go, Grow and Glow Foods

“So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.” – 1 Corinthians 10:31

Multi-level homeschooling entails finding common topics from the different subjects from all the grade levels. Also, school projects should integrate those topics that both simplify the work to be done (less number of output needed) AND at the same time also make it more meaningful by using real-world situations and experiences.

And so for example, instead of cutting and pasting pictures of different types of food, we went to the grocery and they looked for the actual foods for each of the following categories:

  1. GO foods or Energy-giving foods
  2. GROW foods or Body-building foods
  3. GROW foods or Body-regulating foods

This may be used as the integrated project for the following subjects and topics:

Pre-school and Grade 1

  • Science: Basic needs of people
  • MAPEH: Food pyramid (Health)
  • Math: Grouping by color, size, and shape

Review can be done while in the car going home, and there was no need to open our textbooks for this one.

When it comes to learning about the different kinds of food, the end message is the most important:

“Eat right, eat healthy, and eat a balanced diet.”

God bless you!
