Prince of Wales N Public School classes ELKP – Gr. 3 participated in a health presentation. Teacher Mr. Blanchard and Nurse Lorraine from Public Health reviewed handwashing and healthy eating. Students were invited to talk about their favourite vegetables. As favourite vegetables were named, students were asked who liked these vegetables, and numbers tallied. A bar graph with favourite vegetables and number of “likes” was produced for each classroom. Samples of some of the favourite vegetables were shared. Students and teachers were excited to enjoy their favourite vegetables with each other!
In December 2018, Mr. Blanchard (Prince of Wales Public School health teacher for primary) invited Nurse Lorraine (Niagara Region school public health nurse) to visit classes to talk about hand washing and healthy eating. Following the Bright Bites “Paint Your Plate with Vegetables and Fruit” Step 1, students were asked how they could encourage their friends and family to eat more vegetables. Many answers were given, including the idea of sharing which vegetables were their favourites.
Step 2 was the conversation about their favourite vegetables, how they preferred them (raw, cooked, sauces, etc.)
Step 3 was an activity where a student would name a favourite vegetable, then other students would be asked to raise their hand if they liked the vegetable. Results were tallied.
Step 4 was to input these results into Excel sheet “Favourite Veggies and Likes”, and post each classes’ survey in their classroom. Platters of favourite veggies were shared together! Teachers and students were pleased to see these favourite veggies introduced and enjoyed in their classroom!
