Healthy Foods, Healthy Bodies

October 19, 2012 - Preschool Weekly

This Week’s Adventures:Fall is full of healthy foods, many of which we tasted this week. We learned the importance of eating healthy foods to keep our bodies strong!

Favorite Activities: The children cut vegetables and added them to our pot as we made vegetable soup. Yum! We made a huge mural by painting ears of corn, peppers, beets, carrots, potatoes and more! We also enjoyed outdoor yoga time with Miss Jen and playing the dinner plate game. We watched the effect of milk, juice and soda on eggs shells to see what effect they might have on our bones during our science experiment. On the trails we searched for foods that animals might eat and left a few treats behind for them!

Next’s Week’s Theme: Autumn Trees (letter “Tt”)
