Food Groups - Melissa & Doug® This set of play foods in the four basic food groups is perfect for teaching children about the benefits of healthy eating. Allow children to explore the many items, and then group them into the categories of dairy, grains, produce, meats, and fish. Also great for teaching children with certain food allergies what foods they might need to stay away from. Children can manipulate the foods to create a well-balanced meal and later identify healthy choices in the grocery store or at the dinner table.

DSST (standardized test) DSST (formerly DANTES Subject Standardized Tests) are credit-by-examination tests originated by the United States Department of Defense's Defense Activity for Non-Traditional Education Support (DANTES) program. The program is an extensive series of 38 examinations in college subject areas that are comparable to the final or end-of-course examinations in undergraduate college courses. These tests are frequently used in conjunction with CLEP (College Level Examination Program) tests by students pursuing college degrees in non-traditional formats. Whereas CLEP tests are almost exclusively used for lower level credit at regionally accredited institutions, DSST's are available for both upper and lower level credit. Prometric administers Internet-based versions of DSSTs under contract with the Defense Department (for military personnel) or on a fee basis (for civilians).

Comic Fonts and Lettering Original Art Dimensions The vast majority of comic artists draw larger than print size. All comic art gets reduced before it goes to press. 11"x17" sheets of heavy, high-quality art paper called bristol board, are used. These days you can spend a little extra money and buy pre-ruled comic boards, but back in the old days, they did it by hand! It only takes a few minutes, try it out! Bristol board comes in two "tooths" (surface texture), plate (which is smoother) and vellum (which is rougher).
