Ms. Kristin visited our class for the first time today. She will be visiting our class every Friday for the next month to share information about healthy eating and physical activity. Today the students reviewed the six nutrients and they sorted foods based on the ChooseMyPlate.gov model . This program is sponsored by the UMass Extension Nutrition Education Program.
As part of a grant, our students are having data collected about fruit and vegetable consumption and minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity. Fitness level data is also being collected in PE class by Mr. Walker.
Today students received a Polar Active watch in PE class. Students will wear the watch for a week. It will track the minutes of physical activity they are getting over the course of a week. It is important to note that students should NOT take the watch off. It can even get wet! The monitors will be collected in PE class on Friday, January 30th. Our students are playing an important role in collecting data for the grant.
Ms. Kristin has visited our class for the last five weeks to share information about healthy eating and physical activity. This program was sponsored by the UMass Extension Nutrition Education Program. Today was the last day and students received pencils and a water bottle to celebrate the completion of the program. Students will participate in the program in the fourth grade as well.
