    Teacher's Comments
    At MII, teachers are our customers
    Here is what our customers say about MII.
    "I used the packet you sent last year and plan to utilize your new packet just as much."
    "Yes, I will really use MII materials. Our science curriculum is weak. We need to educate our children in science."

    Sherry Roepke - Tullahoma, Tennessee - All subjects - Kindergarten "This is the best 'package' I have received in years. Most of the activities and information at the elementary level is mostly old-had stuff. Your materials are fresh, easy-to-use and chock full of info and ideas. You are really on the 'cutting edge' of providing new and nifty rock and mineral activities"
    J.M. Erdman - Wisconsin
    "The list of how I use your material goes on and on. The iron in the cereal experiment will be used during our electricity/magnetism unit. We just finished astronomy. The information about the gold plated Hubble telescope was shared. The article on mirrors and reflection fits into our current unit on light. The material on money fits our third and fourth grade economic unit. The pencil article fits our simple machines and invention unit. Geology is coming up soon and information and posters will be used creatively. Third grade just finished a dental health unit and made toothpase. I'll share the tooth page with them!!"

    April 2002

    This publication has been prepared for nutrition educators interested in materials on food and nutrition during the holidays. These materials were gathered in an effort to provide ideas or a starting point for preparing nutrition education theme event s during holidays or celebrations. A concerted effort was made to find materials addressing diverse food-related celebrations such as African, Asian, Christian, Hindu, Jewish, Mexican, Muslim and Native American. There are very few resources on holidays exclusively dedicated to food and nutrition topics; most often they are mingled in with non-food related celebratory activities. Due to scarcity of existing materials, such resources were included in the list. The resource list is divided into three parts. Part One lists electronic resources, such as full text online items, relevant websites or organizations with an online representation. Part Two covers journals articles. Part Three lists more traditiona l library resources such as books, curricula, and videotapes. Most of the following subheadings are used throughout: Calendars, Curricula/Teaching Aids/Games/Quizzes, Food Safety, Food Traditions, Healthy Eating, Holiday Cooking and Weight Control. The resources listed contain accurate nutrition information and are available nationwide. Opinions expressed in the publications do not necessarily reflect the views of the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Your local library or bookstore can help you locate these resources. Contact information is provided for web sites and organizations.

One international program was from Sydney, Australia
