Nutrient Research Project
Smore Interactive Poster
For optimal health, our bodies need to have recommended amounts of the 6 essential nutrients: protein, water, minerals, vitamins, fats and carbohydrates. You will create an interactive poster to educate others about one of the 6 essential nutrients. You may work alone or with a partner.
Your poster needs to:
have a name
identify your chosen nutrient
explain the role/function of the nutrient in the body
describe why your nutrient is so important
state the amount needed of this nutrient each day, and whether this amount differs from person to person
indicate what percentage of daily calories should come from this nutrient (if there are calories in your nutrient)
identify at least 10 quality food sources of the nutrient
provide 2 interesting facts about your nutrient
include a minimum of five interactive elements on the poster (text, podcast, video clips, animations, hyperlinks to resources)
- include bibliography links
How do I get started?
Gather interactive elements to include in your interactive poster. You will need to save pictures to your folder so that you can easily import them. Keep track of your URLs.
Go to www. smore.com and create a new flyer. You should choose "Start from Blank". Add text, pictures, audio, website links, videos, and anything else you can to enhance your poster.
