CCE-Steuben recently brought together all their signature programs for a Health Fair for Bath Cub Scout Pack 57. The 20 kindergarten through fifth grade scouts received passports to visit six interactive stations during the evening event to learn about healthy living. At the end of the event they showed their stamped passports to receive a take-home bag filled with activity booklets, water bottles, frisbies and other products to remind them of what they had learned.
Here is a little bit about what each educational station offered:
Financial Educator Nancy Reigelsperger showed the scouts the importance of money skills. They answered money-related questions on the buzzer board and practiced using an ATM machine.
Agriculture Educator Ariel Kirk had the youth create bracelets with the different color representing different aspects of the farm.
4-H Youth Program
4-H Program Leader Jenny Groen used the MyPlate model to show the youth how to read food labels to see what ingredients are in the foods they eat. They each received a bag of healthy trail mix.
Nutrition - Physical Activity
Expanded Food and Nutrition Educational Program (EFNEP) educator Pat Lamphier ran the group through several fun activities that involved movement in order to stress the importance of physical activity.
Nutrition - Think Your Drink
Southern Finger Lakes Eat Smart New York (SFLESNY) educator Jon Sterlace taught the kids to think about what drinks they should choose to stay healthy. They tasted water samples that had a twist.
Nutrition - Fruits and Veggies
Southern FInger Lakes Eat Smart New York (SFLESNY) educator Austin Nichols ran the kids through an activity where they tasted different fruits and vegetables and catalogued their taste, color, and touch of each food.
