This mini unit contains 12 activities that will compliment your health and nutrition unit. The activities are aligned to the common core standards; and a table has been included with direct correlations to help with planning. The activities were developed for use in my kindergarten classroom, but could be adapted for first grade as well. The following is a list of activities included in this unit.
Healthy/Unhealthy Sorting Center: students classify pictures as healthy or unhealthy.
What's Your Flavor: students survey their friends to see which flavor milk is most/least popular in their classroom.
Beginning Sound Cut and Glue: students will cut out letters and match them to the pictures to show the beginning sound for each picture.
Healthy Endings: Students will identify ending sounds in words/pictures.
Counting Mats: Program the grocery bags with the numbers 1-20, and have students count out the correct number of food manipulatives for each bag.
Healthy Eating: Students will draw a picture to show a healthy and well balanced meal.
