  • Explain that while the Food Picture Cards show a variety of foods, there may be favourite or family foods that are not included.
  • Invite students to draw their food choice on the front of the card template. Encourage students to choose foods that are not part of the original Food Picture Card set (check the Master List included in your Food Picture Cards set) to create even more variety in the food choices available for activities.
  • Assist students with writing the name of the food on the back of the card. 


Wrap up:

Ask students:

  • What food did you choose and why?
  • When do you enjoy eating this food?
  • Do you have a favourite memory about a time you ate this food?
  • Do you have a favourite way to eat this food?
