Product Description
As part of my "Healthy Me" unit for my PreK class, we talk about the food groups. For especially young children, the food pyramid and similar stuff is too complicated. We just talk about some general groups, and find similarities and differences with the things in each. For example, we'll talk about how vegetables are things that grow, some are underground, bunnies like them, lots are green, etc. A fun way to extend the discussion is to use your stash of play food that you already have in your classroom and have the children sort it out. I just laminated these labels. I place them out on the floor, give them a basket full of play food, and let them go to it! It is great sorting practice, it generates good discussion about why a certain item belongs where and also helps them learn some new vocabulary. Enjoy it, and please rate it if you find it useful! Thanks, Kristin Berrier
