In addition to being a great, fundraiser for your school the From The Ground Up program also provides numerous teaching opportunities. While students are talking about and selling fresh, local veggies to family and friends, why not also educate them about:
- healthy food choices
- Canada's Food Guide
- eating more veggies
- local food production, and more!
From The Ground Up has come up with some great classroom resources that introduce wonderful ideas that incorporate the fundraiser with learning activities.
The NEW FTGU in the Classroom Resource includes Lesson Plans for Kindergarten to grade 6 that are fun, interactive, easy to adapt and are focussed on the importance of healthy food choices and especially on eating more vegetables. Each lesson is linked to a Healthy Living PLO for each grade.
Check out the NUTRITION BITES for healthy eating messages and the VEGGIE JOKES that you can put in your school newsletter or use for announcements during your FTGU campaign.
