​​​Step 5​ - Handouts

You are almost ready to go!

Now, it is time for you to download these handouts so you can either:
  • begin training others, OR
  • complete the training for yourself to become more familiar with how to use the resources.

Sample Monthly Elements
Download and print these samples of the monthly elements – featuring dried fruits – to become familiar with the content and activities contained in each newsletter. If you would like to use samples of a different featured produce item, please visit the Download Monthly Elements page.

NOTE: For the training packets, these handouts should go in the right side of folder.


Sample Activities from Educator Newsletters
These are samples of activities from the educator newsletters. The Links to California Content Standards provides information on how each activity may support one of the core curricular areas, which include health education, English-language arts, science, history-social science, mathematics and physical education.

Remember that these samples should go in the right side of the folder in the training folder packets (as described in Step 4).
