The Healthily Ever After curriculum includes the Healthily Ever After puppet show DVD, which uses puppetry and music to introduce students to the concepts of eating a variety of foods, being physically active, growing food and washing their hands. The follow-up activities are experiential learning activities that are designed to promote active engagement with materials, peers and adults, in accordance with recommendations put forth by the National Association for the Education of Young Children.
The activities in the Healthily Ever After curriculum are designed for students in pre-kindergarten, kindergarten and first grade. Although activities are designed for ages 4 and up, the curriculum can be used in preschool classrooms that include 3 year olds. Some activities may need to be modified for younger children.
