Tie Dyed T-shirts for Challenge Course Day make a Food Pyramid!

Tie Dyed T-shirts for Challenge Course Day make a Food Pyramid!

About a week before the last Game On event at Raymond Elementary, Nurse Teri Heard asked each child to bring in a white t-shirt and recruited a few other staff members to help tie-dye each shirt with the five colors of the food pyramid.   Teachers had the students bundle and tie off their shirts before dying with rubber bands.   Students wore their t-shirts during the event, which helped group students and reinforce concepts they had learned  throughout the year.

What fun!

Kids' Favorite Food PHotos organized into a Food Pyramid

After completing fruit and veggie, dairy and whole grain challenges, Toth Elementary’s physical education teacher asked the students to bring in photos of themselves with their favorite grain, vegetable, fruit, dairy product, or meat and bean food.  The poster is hung in the school hallway.

Another great way to summarize the Game On physical activity and nutrition challenges was organized into weekly challenges by a pilot Game On school in Florida.  Click here game-on-final-9-weeksparentltrflorida to see what parents received, and here for a summary.game-onweekly-challengesflorida
