|Reviewers Comments: ||This series of fifty short fruit and vegetable activities is designed to allow educators take advantage of short “teachable moments” or fill extra minutes of class time. The booklet includes a wide variety of activities that are split into different targeted age ranges; preschool, K-5, and grade 6+. Each age range has 17 targeted activities, split between five different subject areas. For example, 17 preschool-targeted activities are split into creating art, using the senses, making choices, focusing on variety, and practicing letters and numbers.
Each activity contains the subject area, activity, and directions. Activities do not give preparation time or materials needed, both of which can vary greatly between activities. Many of the activities require that participants have preexisting knowledge of certain fruits, vegetables, or topics. These activities would be better used as a supplement to nutrition education already being conducted in classrooms, rather than used as introductory lessons.
Topics covered vary greatly. Many activities are designed to introduce or reacquaint participants with a variety of fruits and vegetables while others cover nutrition. Some activities do cover topics that could be considered controversial, like super foods or organic foods.
Rather than stand-alone tools, educators could use these short activities as compliment to nutrition education programs or short activities to fill class time.
