March is National Nutrition Month

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics is sponsoring their annual nutrition education and information campaign. This campaign is designed to focus attention on the importance of making informed food choices and developing sound eating and physical activity habits.

TeachAde and NEA Celebrate
Read Across America Day on March 2

Read Across America

The 15th annual NEA's Read Across America Day is the nationwide program that helps children discover the joy of reading and is expected to draw more than 45 million participants.

The stars of "The Lorax" -- Taylor Swift, Zac Efron, Betty White, Danny DeVito, Ed Helms and Rob Riggle  (this year's honorary co-chairs) -- will join NEA President Dennis Van Roekel in New York for the March 2 national kickoff.

Teaching The Iditarod in the Classroom?
NEA Has Lesson Plans For You

Setting out on March 5, teams of 12 to 16 dogs and their musher will cover more than 1,150 miles from Anchorage to Nome in 10 to 17 days.

Follow the trek with these lessons and activities.

The Iditarod was patterned after the All-Alaskan Sweepstakes which were races held in the early 1900s.

Thought for the Day 


"I feel that the most important requirement in success is learning to overcome failure. You must learn to tolerate it, but never accept it."
