Open Education Resource (OER)
The base of Create a Classroom that Moves! is grade-level nutrition lessons that align to select Common Core State Standards in English Language Arts and the National Health Education Standards. The three-lesson units are geared for the busy elementary classroom teacher who would like to integrate nutrition and physical activity into the classroom. Teachers are supported through easy-to-read fact sheets, and ready-to-go assessments and handouts. The following grade-level health behavior outcomes are shaped:
Kindergarten - Eat a variety of healthy foods.
Grade 1 - Eat foods from the five food categories of MyPlate.
Grade 2 - Eat a variety of colors.
Grade 3 - Eat foods from the five food categories of MyPlate.
Grade 4 - Eat snacks from the MyPlate food categories.
Grade 5 - Decrease sugar-sweetened beverage intake.
