The most recent addition to the Education Cubes Members Only Site are the Food Groups insert cards! Included are the five basic food groups as indicated by the USDA: grains, vegetables, fruits, dairy, and proteins. There are 11 different sets of insert cards pertaining to the food groups.
Learning Idea: Use these insert cards with your cubes and roll a complete, balanced meal. Or, roll the cube and indicate what food group the pictured food belongs to.
Wondering what other insert cards are available? View a complete list of all the insert cards currently found on the Members Only Site.
Attention Members: You can currently find these insert cards on the “Food” link found on the “Science” page. They will eventually be moved to the “Nutrition” link that will be on the “Electives” page.
