I am a kindergarten teacher in Charlotte, NC. I teach at a low to middle-income school. Most of the five year olds that I teach think there are two food groups...hamburgers and hot dogs! I would like to educate my students and also motivate them to have good health by teaching about healthy foods. The books I would like to have are good informational books about the basic food groups. The students will learn what the food groups are and why it is important to eat foods from each group. The food pyramid pocket chart is a good resource to have for hands-on learning. Not only can students learn about the food groups, but also classify and sort them by using the pocket chart. Both of these resources would be beneficial for my students. Thank you for reading and considering this proposal to strengthen my health curriculum!
