“Choose Whole Grain Bread Instead,” a colorful, double sided handout from the Whole Kids Foundation, has lots of information on why whole grains are healthy, and how to find them. The whole grain scavenger hunt activity at the bottom of the first page is intended as a grocery store activity, but can easily be adapted to the classroom if you bring in a variety of food packages (or pictures of food packages). It also comes with four whole grain recipes for kids to take home and try (although the Whole Grain Wrap could be made in a classroom, as it doesn’t require cooking).
