Nutrition Activities: Cows, Calcium and Cheese
An "udderly" fun-filled nutrition activity kit to teach K-9th grade students about nutrition with a focus on calcium awareness and bone health. The Kit includes two free posters and an activity guide.
As both a teacher and a farmer, I look forward to having this resource in my classroom.
- Peggy Ainsworth, 4th Grade Teacher
Here is a sampling of some of the activities included:
- LEARN about the power of persuasion, nutrition and advertising by getting your friends to try a favorite snack recipe in "Trick or Treat Your Friends to a Quick 'N Healthy Snack".
- DISCOVER everything you have always wanted to know about a cow - how much they eat, what they eat and how it relates to what we eat - in "How Now Brown Cow - Make a Cow Pizza." Challenge your students with "Cowculating Food Facts" where students cowculate the nutrients in their favorite cafeteria lunch meal.
- BE an All Star Chef — NEW with our latest edition. Bring a local chef in to demonstrate your students favorite recipes with healthier ingredients.
