What Is On Your Plate?
This is the image for the news article titled What Is On Your Plate?Cambridgeport’s Kindergarten students have been engaged in a project about food and nutrition. They have learned about food groups and where food comes from. They have also been exploring what makes a meal healthy. They learned from farmers, both through a visit to the Central square Farmer’s Market, and from a visiting expert/farmer. Many interesting classroom discussions were had along the way such as “what makes a protein a protein?”

As a final product for this expedition, all of the students designed their own placemat that demonstrated a healthy plate (complete with non-fiction text features like labels and titles). Parents were invited to share a healthy breakfast (using the placemats of course), and the placemats will be used during Kindergarten lunch in the cafeteria once they are all finished.
