K2 Presents Nutrition Night
The K2 class celebrated the culmination of their Expedition, “What’s on Your Plate?” with an event last Thursday evening, demonstrating what they have been learning about nutrition and making healthy choices. While working towards the learning target – “I can make choices to keep my body healthy and strong” – students spent months doing hands-on investigations, which included researching the five food groups, conducting fieldwork at a local Whole Foods, and studying healthy lifestyle choices such as exercise and getting a good night’s sleep.
The students demonstrated their new knowledge by performing a song entitled “Some Foods are Healthy,” with their own original lyrics. The audience was so impressed that they demanded an encore! Following the encore performance, our K2ers then debuted their research place mats and wowed the audience with an in-depth informational session on how to make healthy choices.
