Title:What's Cookin' in the Classroom Curriculum
Pub. date: 2001
Includes: Curriculum, activities
Audience: Children, Elementary School, Middle School, Kindergarten
Language: English
Description:The curriculum focuses on nutrition education in the classroom for use by teachers, health professionals or paraprofessionals to teach students in grades K-8. While the lessons focus on nutrition education, children are also taught health and social skills and language and creative arts. Lesson titles are Garden Pizza, Healthy Snacking, Thanking the Pumpkin and Three Sisters.
Funding Source: Food Stamp Program
Developer: Grace Agnello, Monique Baron, Julie Mazza and staff of the New Jersey Urban Ecology Program.

Pilot Testing: Each lesson was tested internally and at a New Brunswick school by the program coordinator. Feedback was received by teachers and lessons were revised and field tested again, if necessary. Lessons were also tested by a student prior to release.
Use Restrictions: Not copyright protected.
Reviewers Comments: This curriculum provides many interactive activities to keep students attention. Lessons are organized and provide a ‘background’ section. The lessons contain some grammatical or typing errors. The lesson ‘Garden Pizza’ encourages two or more servings of fruit a day but the graphic drawing reads + three. The number of dairy servings recommended in the text is three or more a day but the graphic reads + two. The USDA Food Guide Pyramid recommends 2-3 servings of dairy products per day. Graphics are line drawings without captions. Lessons may require educators to purchase or order outside materials. Nutritional analysis and serving size are not provided for the recipes, however yield is given. The lessons on the introductory page do not match the list in ‘view all lessons for this curriculum’. Many objectives do not pertain to children and are duplicates from the previous curriculum, ‘Small Group Adult Nutrition Lessons’. The Web site requires participants to register.
Note: The New Jersey SNAP-Ed Website now requires users to register before they can access information. Registration is free and education materials accessed after registering are still free.
