Get Kids Involved in Active Learning about Nutrition with Our Teaching Guide!  

     Now you can get kids moving, singing, talking, coloring, cutting, and exploring with “All About Farmers’ Markets: A Teaching Guide for Classrooms, Camps, and Community Programs.”   

     Filled with activities for children in PreK through Second Grade, this companion to “A Visit to the Farmers’ Market” incorporates nutrition education with language arts, social studies, science, music, physical activities, and more.  Many activities are adaptable for older children as well.  

   Ten units include topics such as “Thinking About What We Eat,” “Making Good Food Choices,” “From Farm to Market,” and “Tastes and Textures of the Market.”  Each unit has clearly stated main concepts and learning objectives that address current health education standards and cross curricular approaches.  All of the 40+ activities are original and were developed specifically for the book by the author.
