This week we kicked off our unit by reading Good Enough to Eat.
We explored how our body needs food and what type of food it needs by looking at the Food Pyramid.
After, we sort healthy and non healthy food. We discussed how unhealthy food is just meant to eat on occasion.
Yesterday, the Memphis Botanic Gardens came and talked to the children about what's a fruit and what's a veggie. The children sorted them, made a veggie person, and planted a spinach seed.
Today, we made shape pizzas. We started by "making" our crust and then adding the sauce. I gave out the "topping" to each table, and each child picked how many of each shape they wanted.
After the children made their pizza, they had to record how many of each shape they used.
