Oh, Apple!

An Apple for Your Teacher!

Once upon a time, students brought shiny red apples to their teachers on the first day of school. Hopefully, the apple would impress the teacher, and the new school year would be off to a successful start.

In that same spirit, "inQuiry Almanack" is starting off the new school year with a spotlight on apples, bananas, pineapples, and all of the other fruits that make life naturally delicious.

Take a bite out of these fruity webpages and consider trying some of the fruity new activities in your classroom.


The Fruit

The food pyramid eating plan recommends two to four servings of fruit every day. Increase awareness of the many delicious fruits that can be a daily treat.

Nutrition

While you're on the subject of healthy eating, you might want to continue exploring the topic of nutrition using these resources.

Fruit Sticker Fun

Encourage healthy eating habits by starting a classroom collection of fruit stickers. Most people simply trash the stickers that mark the origin of their fruit. The following webpages are devoted to collecting these fruit stickers. Try keeping a collection of fruit stickers for a month (or longer)! The result should be an increased awareness of healthy eating.

Classroom Activities

While you're on the subject of healthy eating and nutrition, you might like to try one of these extension activities.
