How it works

Harvest of the Month materials are designed for pre-school, elementary, or middle schoolers and can be taught in the classroom, after-school, or out of home settings.

Each fruit and vegetable comes with a set of educational materials to make learning easy, tasty, and fun. Search by season for quick access to the materials you are looking for.

 
 



Each presentation includes:

  • Fruit or vegetable history
  • Peak seasons
  • Vitamins & minerals
  • How to find it at the store

You’ll also get:

  • Presenter outline
  • PowerPoint for students
  • Presenter talking points that follow the PowerPoint for students
  • Stickers of the featured fruit
  • Student handout with recipes that can be taken home
 

These materials, combined with produce sampling, make fruit and veggies interesting and fun. Kids of all ages get to play with new tastes and different textures, bring home ideas to use in the kitchen, and have a reason to ask for more fruit and vegetables.

Lesson plans are available for teachers to use in individual classrooms, health classes, PE classes, school assemblies and after school programs, and are adaptable to almost any educational setting.

Each folder includes PDFs, Word documents and templates, and PowerPoint presentations.

South Dakotans aren’t getting enough… (especially veggies) and it’s hurting our health. The good news is that more matters and all we need to do is get 5 a day!
