Healthy Body Jigsaw

I started with students in small groups. Each group was given some information to read about a given nutrient such as fiber or vitamin B. After reading the information, each group agreed on the main idea of their information as well as 3 details that supported that main idea.

I then broke up the groups in jigsaw fashion so each student had to teach "their" main idea and details to their new small group. They did the teaching with the help of DrawingPad and Strip Designer (drawing a picture and writing their details while they talked).

Each group then put all their Strip Designs together in Pic Collage. As a class we looked at each Pic Collage and talked about similarities and differences.
