HEALTH AND WELLNESS


Students in Mrs. Cannone's kindergarten class are learning how to stay healthy while attending a health and wellness program with Ms. Uhelsky. Students are learning how to stay healthy through eating the rainbow way. By eating fruits and vegetables from the different colors of the rainbow on a daily basis students can help their minds and bodies stay strong and healthy. In this lesson students are  Identifying the different colors of the rainbow and the fruits and vegetables that correlate with each color. Students will then learn how each color can help their bodies in a different way. For example, green fruits and vegetables help keep our vision clear and help make our bones and teeth strong while blue and purple fruits help keep our memories sharp and our bodies healthy as they grow.
