Today in play group, the students learned about the food pyramid. They learned that it is important to eat healthy food to grow up big and strong. We talked about the different kinds of bread, cereal, and pasta there are as well as had them point out the fruits and vegetables they knew on the pyramid itself. The students then were asked what ingredients we would need to make a sandwich. Then each student was handed a piece of bread a knife, butter, lettuce, yellow peppers, and lunch meat and layered their sandwiches. The last thing they needed to do was to fold it in a half to make their sandwich. Once we made it, students were then asked what shape the sandwich became reinforcing our discussion of the triangle. They really enjoyed this lesson and loved eating them too!
