Title of Bulletin Board: Nutrition Month
Suggested Grade Level: All
Materials: Bulletin Board Paper, Construction Paper, Food Cut Outs (couple from each food group)
March is Nutrition Month so I took an icon related to March/ spring (the rainbow) and added nutritional food to it on each color, each color was their own food group (fruits on red, veggies on green, ect.). The rainbow was made of strips of construction paper stapled together to make a loop and then connected the loops to make a chain. Chain was made to make the rainbow have a 3 D look, along with adding crumpled paper behind the cloud and pot of gold to make them stand out. I wrote, "whats on your plate?",at the bottom to have the students think about what they eat daily at each meal. The visual food examples on the bulletin board lets the students know there is a wide variety of healthy foods that they can choose from. There is a classroom activity to go along with this bulletin board as well, students can write poems, letters, sentences, pictures about nutrition and why it is important to them and how they are going to improve their nutritional habits. The student activities are going to be added to the bulletin board as soon as they are completed and turned in.
