HERITAGE FLORIDA JEWISH NEWS, DECEMBER 11, 2009 From fourth grade to food pantry By Dori Gerber HDS This school year, Hebrew Day School has made a pledge to get healthy. As part of this pledge, each grade level has taken on a particular area of health and nutrition to learn about and then educate the rest of the school. It seemed only natural that the fourth grade would learn about Nutrition Fact Labels, otherwise known as food labels, because reading for information is currently an area of study in the fourth grade curriculum. To kick off this mini-unit in November, the students brought in food products from home. It was decided by the students that the food would be donated to the Pearlman Food Pantry once the products were no longer needed in the classroom. From there, the students watched videos, visit- ed Web sites and analyzed food labels in order to collect infor- mation that they could impart school-wide. They uncovered facts such as that school-aged children should eat between 1,600-2,200 calories in a day, which means they should pay close attention to calories and portion sizes on the food labels. They also discovered that the first ingredient on a food label is the main ingredient in the product. So, theywarned their schoolmates that if sugar is the first ingredient listed, the item is probably not very healthy for you. So, just how did the fourth graders teach the teachers, parents and students at HDS about the importance of reading food labels? Through technology, of course. Using the many technological re- sources available, the students wrote and filmed a Series of commercials thatwere aired during the month of Novem- ber on the school's TV news program, WHDS News. "I liked doing this project because I learned about fat and calories and things I never knew about before," said fourth grader Ari Azbel. "Making the commercials was cool because .it was fun to tell everyone what ! learned about the food labels in a different way." Reflecting on giving the food to the Pearlman Food Pantry, student Sophie Libow said, % feel that it is a very nice thing to do, and it makes me feet good that I get to do something to help other people while learning, too." It is clear that at HDS learn- ingoutside of the box is very important, but just as impor- tant as learning is practicing the mitzvah of giving. Both of these have been supported by this fourth grade project. The food label videos are available for viewing on the fourth grade's Web page-on the HDS website: www.hds- The Hebrew Day School still has limited spaces avail- able for the 2009-2010 school year.
