At the Farm

On Friday the students went to the farm and harvested their own fruits and vegetables.  They were also given a packaged food item from 711. They were asked to do a research project with two questions in mind:

“What are the ingredients inside the food?”

“How do those ingredients effect the body?”

We learned that there is a lot of terrifying results from eating these processed snacks and that natural foods such as fruits and vegetables are incredibly beneficial for our body.

In the end I asked students which food they would prefer to eat.  Most students changed their mind but, for some, it is still a work in progress.  It’s hard to compete with a gummy bears.
