Summary: Education materials for school and home using relatable characters for PreK to upper elementary students.

Details: This site has an extensive resource collection ranging from PreK to upper elementary levels. A unique feature about this website is that the curriculum includes relatable characters such as the Arianna and Little D. Little D takes the students back in time to learn about healthy food choices and an active lifestyle, while Arianna, the action hero, takes the students through different lands to discover the importance of health and activity. Many lessons offer “home connections” with activities that can be extended beyond the classroom and into the home. Overall, these lessons are fun and engaging for the kids. Additional classroom suggestions, monthly themes, classroom contests, and nutrition news can be located here.
