As part of a three person team, I developed and lead a nutrition education lesson for a local Head Start location in Los Osos with bilingual, preschool-aged students. The lesson was called “Eat the Rainbow” and focused on encouraging eating a variety of colors by including more fruits and vegetables in meals.
Photos of the Lesson’s Activities:
Rainbow Relay: Students raced out and retrieved the right color fruit/veggie.
Rainbow Kebab Making: Students assembled a “rainbow on a stick” with fruits for each color and then got to eat their yummy creation.
Leave Behinds: materials we developed to be used in the classroom or taken home to encourage maintenance of learning objectives
This is the large rainbow poster I made with velcro squares to pin up each fruit and vegetable cut-out. The organization’s leader requested we leave it for future use.
This is the white-board I made for the teacher to use in the classroom to check off the colors in their lunch that day
We made stickers with the image above for students to wear home at the end so parents would ask them about what they learned.
An activity packet was sent home with the students to complete with their parents.
