Description and organisation
This activity is based on tic-tac-toe, but with a 4×4 grid to include all 4 food groups. The level of difficulty is higher, because a line must be drawn through an item from each group. Divide the campers into 2 teams.
There are 3 levels of difficulty.
In the first part, each team has to draw a diagonal, horizontal, or vertical line through the 4 food groups (1 item from each group).
In the second part, the game is played the same way, but the campers pick a different way of moving to place the food item on the grid (e.g., hop on 1 foot, walk on all fours).
In the third part, the campers pair up with a teammates and take turns bringing the item to the grid while wearing a blindfold while their partner provides guidance.
- Motor skills
- Knowledge of nutrition
The ways of moving during the second part of the game can be adapted to the age group.
