Nutrition Fair

Today, April 7, 2017 was the annual nutrition fair at our school. Every year the whole school participates in this fun activity. The purpose of the fair is to learn about healthy habits. Volunteers from the local hospital came to help. There was a farmer for the kinder-3grade classes. Students got to pick the different stations that they were interested in.  Some stations were Rethink Your Drink, Hula-hoop, Jump rope, soccer, dance, painting, dodge ball, crossfit, apple toss, art, watermelon eating contest, yogurt station, obstacle course, playground challenge, cedars healthy habits Parachute.

Of course there wasn’t enough time to do all the activities so we pick the ones that were open and available. Our whole class and teacher participated together to try the different activities and to eat healthy snacks. At this event we got to learn about eating healthy and also learn about exercising. We got to play all kinds of fun games too. Our teacher also joined in the fun.

All Classtopians said that dodge ball was their favorite because it was hilarious. It was dodge ball in a new way. Our teacher also LOVED playing the game Not only did she play the game with us but she also made up her own rules. She could cross the line and go get people out. Sometimes she just called a person to walk up to the line by pretending to tell them something. When they got there she would get them out. So many people fell for her trick and got out. We know she was cheating but it got people out faster and more people got to play.  It was great! Everyone was laughing.  

Our least favorite was the yogurt. We did not like it at all. Then the Principal explained to us that it was a sugar free yogurt and that was the difference. We have to learn how to eat healthy food with less sugar.

After all the fun we had to go back to class.

  1. Yogurt without sugar is something that WE ALL need to get used too!! But we need to remember that it's healthier for our bodies. I'm so happy your class enjoys an event that your school believes in.
