|Reviewers Comments: ||Kit features 20 activity ideas that focus on fruits, vegetables, and/or physical activity. Each activity contains the same information including time, materials, and actual activity instructions. Activities are designed to build upon one another, but can be taught as stand-alone activities. Many activities are accompanied by copy-ready handouts.
Activities take about 30 minutes, with prep time varying from 5 to 20 minutes. Appendix section includes additional puzzles and games for children, and other helpful resources.
The kit is designed for non-experts, therefore a background section with nutrition and physical activity information is provided as well as other resources in the Appendix. Educators should note that the background section and some recommendations within lessons are based on the 2005 Dietary Guidelines for Americans, and MyPyramid. Intake recommendations in lessons can be checked against the current recommendations in the 2010 Dietary Guidelines and MyPlate.
This resource is designed for children age 5 to 11 years; however, many of the activities are better suited for older children, approximately 4th & 5th grade.
