Title of Bulletin Board: How is your balance?
Suggested Grade Level: All
Materials: Butcher paper, food photos cut from magazines or printed, markers
The food pyramid was formed with scraps of butcher paper, the scales were made with discarded construction paper, and each food group had a footer that identified a recommended daily intake and gave students tips in a non-technical tone. This is part of a school-wide effort to improve nutrition and student activity levels and works hand-in-hand with family nutrition courses offered in the evenings. The scale's beam was formed by forcing the paper into a "loop" and stapling it in place, catching students' eyes with its 3-D effect.
