This year both our elementary school and junior high celebrated National Food Day with a full day of workshops on agriculture, nutrition, and cooking. Fourteen experiential sessions spread between the two campuses, dozens of volunteers, and happy, engaged learners everywhere you looked made for a big, wonderful day. So big that I’ve decided to tell the story in little “nibbles.”
In the weeks preceding the event, I had students work on food collages on foam board. We did this during our garden lessons and in the after-school program, using seed catalogues.
I hung the whole collection in front of school to announce the day’s theme.
Younger students also colored these signs……

Afterschool students also made posters to hang around campus:
To be continued….until then, keep calm and eat real. 🙂
