You have been asked to write an informative article on the importance of healthy eating for an elementary school newspaper. In a paragraph of five to seven complete sentences describe how you would present to your target audience the information you find during your research.
Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
Within only 5 to 7 sentences is somewhat a limited capacity. For an article that involves research, I think we need to use the scientific research format that includes: introduction (definition of healthy eating, the conditions of healthy eating in elementary school children, how have schools and families provided children with this need, shifts in the capacity to provide in different communities...) , some statistics (research some data about the daily need of some important vitamins, proteins, etc), the experimental procedures ( how the research comes about finding the link between healthy eating and the importance that it places on children health); conclusion (Yes it does); discussion (some afterthoughts about some shortcomings of our system in providing children with healthy eating, the amount of awareness we have given to this issue regarding its pivotal role to children).
Since it is the elementary schoolchildren who are the target I would think that using storytelling to incorporate our facts and ideas. I like the image of the "World Village" by Marshal McLuhan, in which he compares the whole world with a village of 100 people. To pinpoint a statistics that may be abstract to small kids, we would want to say something like "the world is like a small village of 100 people, these people need 100 apples, 100 loafs of bread to feed themselves everyday". This is my suggestion, there are many ways to get ideas across to kids.
Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
