Although many of us enjoy taking time to relax and recharge, this is also a good time to reconnect with old Classroom 2.0 friends and to make new ones. This is when I have the space to think about ways to change/update curriculum in meaningful ways for my 3rd graders.

This summer I have also been given a grant for a school-wide learning experience with food. This project will have lessons, speakers, field trips, curricular tie-ins, and hands on experiences. It will encompass sustainability, nutrition, agriculture, global awareness, and service learning.

My curriculum team and I would love any ideas from members of Classroom 2.0. Please take the time to leave comment.

Hi Amy,
Lucky you to receive such a grant! Free money is a good thing! :-)
You've probably have heard of this, but the usda has a great resource (takes a little digging to uncover it from their 'mypyramid' site. Lessons for grades 1-5 can be found at:

Good luck!

Thanks for your help. We do have a lot of nutrition info but it is helpful to get more - I'm not sure if we have this one or not.
