Talking to our students about healthy foods, especially snacks, has become a daily occurrence in classrooms everywhere. I love to write poetry and found integrating it into curriculum not only easy but also purposeful, especially when rhyme is involved.
This group of ten nutritious fruit poems, is one of many I've written which have been particularly successful in sparking both discussion and creative writing about making healthy snack choices.
Many of the fruits mentioned here may be unavailable to you in your area, as they come from all around the world but finding out the country of origin and nutrition qualities of each, makes for great research.
I KNOW your students will enjoy and benefit from, these delicious poems.
