As a health teacher of many years, I have experience teaching nutrition topics to kids in this age range.  In fact, before teaching health, I taught both middle school and 5th grade.  I enjoy the upper elementary / middle school age range very much and consider it my age range of expertise.
Week of June 13th: a ziploc bag and a rubber band (or tape) Week of June 20th: two bananas, one more ripe than the other Week of June 27th: brown paper bag, scissors, pen or pencil, olive oil or vegetable oil, and a few foods or drinks from the kitchen (most any foods or drinks will work, but a few examples are a carrot, mayonnaise, bread, water, apple juice, potato chip, donut, pizza, broccoli, milk, etc) Week of July 4th: one banana and a vitamin C tablet (or lemon juice) ALTERNATIVELY: paper and pencil or crayons Week of July 18th: n/a Week of July 25th: a few nutrition labels from items in your pantry Week of August 1st: n/a
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
I use the third-party application Pear Deck frequently in my lessons.  Pear Deck is a program that allows learners to interact with the teacher's slides by drawing on them, dragging icons, answering questions, and more.  Pear Deck is easy to use and easy to access.  During our Zoom meeting, I will put a link to the slides in the Zoom chat.  Students will click on it and instantly have access.  Students may need an email address to access the Pear Deck slides, but it will not be visible to other learners.

We will also occasionally use Gimkit, a game-style quiz for newly acquired knowledge.
