We just finished a two week study of nutrition.  We talked about all of the food groups and making healthy choices.  We also made some really cute crafts during our study of nutrition.  As you will see, we had a blast learning about nutrition.

 It Looked Like Spilt Milk- they really used their imaginations and came up with some great ideas.

Pizza Glyph- another glyph from Shari Sloan used to represent information about ourselves.  We also read Pizza Pat  by Rita Golden Gelman and learned how to make our very own, delicious pizzas for special snack.  (English muffins, pizza sauce, mozzarella cheese and pepperonis)

Apple Day- We spent a whole day doing apple activities.  One of our favorites was the apple graph!  We all lined up by our apple colors and took a picture holding up our apples.  We analyzed our information and found that most people in our class like mixed apples.

Hot Dog Graphing- We read The Pigeon Finds a Hot Dog! by Mo Willems and graphed how we like to eat our hot dogs.  We found that most people like them with ketchup.  Mo Willems' website a a great game to go along with this book.  Click here to play!

We also learned a song to put in a pocket chart- Five Little Hot Dogs
Five little hot dogs frying in a pan.
The grease got hot and one went BAM!
Four little hot dogs frying in a pan (and so on....)

Grain Day- We read On Top of Spaghetti by Tom Glazer and made Spaghetti Man- he eats the pasta right off the plate!

Tops and Bottoms Flipbook- activity done following Tops and Bottoms by Janet Stevens

Shopping for Healthy Choices From Each Food Group

Healthy vs. Not Healthy- students looked through magazines to find all of their pictures
