"Healthy Hero"

Gaining self-awareness of their health and well being, students identify nutritious food choices and gain an understanding of the “MyPlate” guidelines. Through dynamic games and positive self expression, students learn how to make responsible decisions about their personal behavior as they become “Healthy Heroes.” Learn about Nutrition in short, fun and easy to follow lesson plans for grade 3.
