The MENTOR project is a program aimed at reducing the risk of overweight and obesity in elementary school children. The resulting MENTOR project website, can be used in the classroom and includes a variety of teacher resources, lesson plans, printables and even parent newsletters. MENTOR lesson plans integrate nutrition content into 4 primary subject areas: English, Math, Science and Social Studies so that teachers can easily meet educational standards while promoting child nutrition at the same time!
How can this website be used in the classroom and at your school?
You can use this website in the classroom to learn about nutrition and create lesson plans, show multimedia, and find printables to help your students learn. For each nutrition education area there is information on the topic as well as a "Teacher Resources" page that contains lesson plans, multimedia, printables, and children's books.
You can use this website at your school for information on the wellness policy, as well as how to start a school garden, field trip ideas, nutrition science project ideas, and to find free nutrition related classroom supplies.
