Enjoying our Healthy Harvest
Enjoying our Healthy Harvest is back online! We appreciate your patience while Oregon State University adopted a new web page.
The Enjoying our Healthy Harvest curriculum includes 30-minute lesson plans for 9 different fruits and vegetables: apples, blueberries, broccoli, carrots, corn, pears, raspberries, pumpkins, and watermelon. Designed for educators, the materials include learning objectives, directions, discussion questions, list of materials and suggestions for parent handouts. (Grade 4-adult). Food Safety lesson tips using the High Speed Hand Washing technique (pre-school through adult) are included. Create your own favorite local produce lesson with a Master Lesson Plan Template.
To celebrate 10 years of Enjoying our Healthy Harvest we will be updating the look and submitting for evidence-based curriculum status. The 2015 edition is available to download here. We are aware of a number of broken links in some of the materials. A review for revision is underway and should be completed by the end of 2019. We will note the Review or Revision date in the file name in the Lesson Materials link below. If you have new lessons that you have created with our template, other materials that you would like to contribute or suggestions for the 2019 revision please let us know!
