Elementary Students Write Their Way to Healthy Eating
For the last several weeks Mrs. Wood’s 2nd graders and all of the 3rd, 4th, 5th graders have been studying healthy diets. They have been introduced to information about the Food Guide Pyramid and the functions of nutrients. The students also classified different snacks as junk food and healthy foods. We finished the unit with a creative writing assignment where students constructed a healthy food acrostic poem. One poem from each class will be selected that shows creativity and an understanding of healthy eating. Some poem winners have been chosen including Seth (3C), Zach (3O), Chance (4G), James (4M), and Hannah (4F). The others winners will be selected in the following weeks. The acrostic poems have been displayed in the hallway connecting the High School and Elementary Schools.
