Year 2 Learns About Healthy Eating Through Art

healthy-eatingThroughout the week, students have practiced all aspects of eating Healthy Food. Through the 5 food groups, they have analyzed and reflected about a healthy diet.

Students had the opportunity to talk about how often they eat fruit, what kind of fruits they enjoy, and how fruit is a healthy choice for your body.

Arts and Design class is a subject that is linked to Science, and this week the children made their own still life paintings (a still life is a painting featuring an arrangement of inanimate, everyday things – frequently natural objects such as flowers, food, wine, etc.), so it was a perfect way to weave in the importance of eating healthy food.

The children had a marvelous time, using cardboard, fruits and paint, and created some truly stunning artwork. Well done Year 2!
