Have you ever wondered how to enhance a food tasting? In Madera Unified School District, Mrs. Nava decided to make an English assignment activity with a nutrition twist for her 2nd grade class. The English assignment consisted of the students getting into groups to come up with adjectives that described what they thought of the kidney bean tasting they tried in November. Once completed, the assignment was displayed on their classroom's Nutrition Corner.
Trying to fill a nutrition corner with student work or activities doesn't have to be too difficult or take up too much time out of your day. Ideas can sometimes be as easy as combining the assignment you had originally planned, but altering the topic or theme.
