Give out a student survey which guides students to answer this question.
New Group Name
Food For Thought
The Totally Awesome Food Group
21st Century Mind, Body, and Soul
I really like this one, whoever wrote it!
The Health Nuts!
Students come up with ways to make school food more nutritious
Students do a Walk for Cancer, Diabetes, etc.
I think we could create a blog off of our webpage with a list of walks like the one attached for Diabetes.
Link to Diabetes Walk in Manhattan
Maybe set up some Intramural Sports
Student Coaches, This also connects students who enjoy but dont excell at sports with an afterschool function
Maybe have a Friday intermural sports night @ school. (my jr. high used to do this and it was awesome!)
Dance Dance Revolution
there are workout games for the Wii
Wii Boxing is quite the workout...so is the baseball game!
Discuss emotional issues students deal with in school
Come up with ways to deal with those issues
Have a "Mental Wellness" Day in school (come up with activities for students)
What does Nourishment Mean?
We could build this area off of the Webster Definition and then break it down to the above sub areas.
Student Nutrition Awareness Night: Come learn about nutrition and creative tasty ingredients to make nutritious meals
Fast Food Survey
Plans for Future
Different profiles of student's progress with weightloss goals., Are we definately going to focus on nutrition and weightloss?
Maybe link the website to resources like Weight Watchers for kids
A commercial asking kids what nutrition means to them and why they think it is important, Have kids make a commercial after they learn more about "nourishment" (at end of collaboration) so we can see how they've grown.
We could connect the Blog to the website

It's Jessie and I have no idea how to get my name/password for Skype. Skype has already been downloaded and it seems the only way I can get my password is to download it again...help!
If you don't have your username and password, I do believe you have to download and setup a new account again. ~ Jarrod
How society has changed our activities, ie we spend most of the day sitting at a computer instead of, well, moving, LOL
We can make cultural connections through time and see how ideas of "Nourishment" have changed over time throughout the world.
A Better America
How will good nutritition make America a stronger nation
Vegetables increase life expectancy
OUR LINK TO EMBED!
Make a daily plan for kids and adults to follow
What Educators Can Do
If we are going to focus on physical nourishment, I definately think interdisciplinary activities need to be encouraged. Collaborating with health teachers, and providing students real life experiences in classrooms will definately be a plus!
Exercise in/out classroom (not just @ recess and gym)
Try to integrate "Nourishment" topics into lessons. i.e. A math teacher can have students look at menus and add up calories/fat/etc. to practice addition.
Collaborate with Health Teachers
