Add a little calcium to your lesson plan.
It's no secret: get kids interested in your lessons and they're far more likely to learn faster. Which is why Sorrento® Cheese is a great way to teach kids everything from the food pyramid to fractions. Because now you're not just talking math and science. You're also talking great taste and nutrition.

Our Five Senses - Grades K-1
People use their five senses to learn more about the world around them. In this lesson, children will learn what the five senses are, and which part of the body performs which sense. They will use their senses to try to find out what the "mystery snack" of the day is.
Using the Food Guide Pyramid to Make Healthy Food Choices -Grades K-2
Food is fun, and so is learning about it! Choosing foods from the Food Guide Pyramid as well as being physically active will help you grow healthy and strong. In this lesson, students will be introduced to the Food Guide Pyramid. They will then, in cooperative groups, create Food Guide Pyramid collages. As an extension activity, students will make personal food pyramids with food they like to eat.
Measuring Length with String Cheese - Grades 1-2
Length can be measured using many forms, from metric units to standard units. Students can learn to measure length by using tools such as a ruler, yardstick, meter stick or tape measure. They can also measure length using nonstandard measurement. Nonstandard measurement can use any available "tool" as a measurement unit. Non-standard measurement is useful when people need to measure something and do not have a traditional measuring tool. In this lesson, children will learn how to measure using a nonstandard measurement tool, which many of them are quite familiar with - string cheese!
Getting to Know Fractions and Equivalent Fractions Ã¢â‚¬â€ Grades 3-5
Fractions are used to represent the parts of a whole. The denominator represents the whole, and the numerator represents the parts. Fractions can be modeled by dividing a unit into equal parts. Equivalent fractions are those that equal the same number. In this lesson, students will be introduced to the concept of fractions and equivalent fractions by using pizzas as manipulative tools to model the part-to-whole relationship.
Follow that Cheese - Grades 4-6
In this lesson, students will first brainstorm a list of different types of cheeses. They will select a cheese and find its country or state of origin. Students will research their country or state. They will be asked to prepare a written report and give an oral presentation using the information they have collected. Following the presentations, the class will have a cheese-tasting celebration as a culminating activity.
Perimeter, Area & Volume - Grades 4-6
Perimeter is the distance around any closed figure. Area is the number of square units needed to cover a surface enclosed by a geometric figure. Volume is the amount of space that a three-dimensional figure contains. In this lesson, students will apply their understanding of perimeter, area and volume using various forms of cheese as models to measure. Measurements can be made in customary or metric form. After finding the measurements, the cheese can be eaten.
