Activities

Now that you know more about vitamins let's try some activities. We have created a few printable documents that you might want. The first is a summary of the vitamin and food groups. The second document is a vitamin match game. See if you can match the foods to the vitamins they contain.

Summary of Vitamins: a good worksheet for study based on the ABC's of Vitamins Pages.

Vitamin Match Game: test your knowledge with this match game. Be careful not to look at the second page if because it has the answer key.

Vitamins can be mysterious, but they are real molecular structures that you can see in the images below. Each image shows a computer model of the structure of the vitamin. For those that want to explore further, click on the image to obtain the protein date bank file (PDB) that can be viewed using an interactive plug-in for your browser. The Chime plug-in is free from MDL.

Vitamin C - Ascorbic acid
Vitamin B1 - Thiamine
Vitamin D - Calciferol
