Kindergarten Classes Read “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” & Learn About Nutrition

Posted in: Wilkinsburg School District News

After reading The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle, the students at Kelly and Turner learned what snacks are healthy and what ones are not. They joined Ms. Michelle and Mr. David from Nutrition Group, our food service company, in the cafeteria for an activity. Each student was given a tray with a piece of celery, cream cheese, raisins, carrots and pretzels with which they were instructed to make their own caterpillar. Some weren’t too thrilled by the taste of the cream cheese, but they had so much fun with the activity and promised to practice taking “polite bites” more often.
