Snack Pack: School Nutrition Activity Curriculum for Kids Grades K-6.
Allegheny Intermediate Unit, Pittsburgh, PA.
Designed to aid classroom teachers in providing dynamic nutrition instruction to children in elementary schools, this SNACK Pack project (School Nutrition Activity Curriculum for Kids) provides a coordinated instructional plan to facilitate the integration of nutrition and related health and consumer education concepts as part of the elementary curriculum. It is structured so that teachers have the responsibility of selecting learning objectives and activities which best meet the needs, interests, and abilities of the students to be served. The manual is divided into three sections according to grade levels (grades K to 2, grades 3 to 4, and grades 5 to 6). Each is colored for easy reference. Ten to twelve activity-centered units comprise each level and include basic concepts, objectives, learning activities, resources, and suggestions for subject area integration. For ease of implementation, teacher reference activity sheets, student evaluation devices and activity sheets are included. A reference section is also provided for the teacher to review basic nutrition concepts before initiating instruction. (Author/MP)
