With all that seems to be going on in March, did you know it’s also National Nutrition Month? We have featured activities and videos to share that can enhance students’ understanding of healthy eating, exercise, and the science of nutrition, all important facets of their education.
Depending on the grade level of students you work with, you can check out these resources, some of which we’ve posted earlier, as well as others at PBS LearningMedia:

Grades 6-12 | Video | Body Needs
