    A good resource to introduce the nutrients or review them. Having it as a class activity also helped students to retain the information.

    Beautifully presented resources. I made a class set of 6.
    Students love gamification and I m so board of teaching the 6 nutrients after 30years. Engaging for all of us. Love your work.
