Research and experts agree that many children have poor dietary habits and are physically inactive. To help kids make better nutrition choices and learn the benefits of physical activity, Modern Woodmen offers the free Exercise and Nutrition Program for learning environments.
Who can use this program?
The program is divided into three age groups, and it can be used with kids in prekindergarten through eighth grade. Schools, scouts, 4-H clubs, churches, park and recreation departments, and other youth organizations may use this free program. Resources for children
Designed to meet many national standards and Common Core State Standards, the Exercise and Nutrition Program links to various subject areas when used in a classroom environment. Materials provided:
- Jump ropes for each child
- Bookmarks for each child
- Instructional materials, including student reproducibles, found online at mwayouthedprograms.org
Modern Woodmen representatives donate Modern Woodmen youth educational programs to local schools and/or youth-related organizations. In parts of the country not serviced by Modern Woodmen, the programs may not be available.
