A 2nd Grade school project to encourage healthy eating habits. Children made placemats and created their own booklets. They learnt about the 5 food groups and kept a record of what they ate for a week. They learnt the song 'Today I ate a Rainbow' and danced to the video 'Dance for the Food Groups'. They also recorded their physical activity for a week and learnt about the importance of a good night's sleep and personal hygiene.
