Second Grade Class Materials

This Nurture Curriculum is designed to allow schools to provide their students with highly interactive wellness lessons appropriate for the students’ developmental stages. Students explore how to apply nutrition, fitness, and relaxation concepts to their lives. Second grade focuses on three main topics: MyPlate, Sensational Snacks, and Fitness and Flexibility.

The materials are designed to minimize the amount of extra workload for teachers. All activities are linked to Common Core Learning Standards for English or Math. There are 3 activities every month:

  • Lesson – this is a 15 to 20 minute lesson on the topic of the month
  • PE Activity – this activity reinforces the monthly topic through physical games
  • Supplemental Activity – this classroom activity reinforces the topic through English or Math Common Core Learning Standards

We recommend spacing these activities so the students receive no more than one activity a week. This will require them to expend more effort to recall the concepts, thus helping to reinforce them.

Note: If this is the first year your school is implementing the curriculum or you do not teach the first grade lessons at your school, please make the following substitution.
