We devote an entire week to the study of fruits and vegetables.
Students create Power Point Presentations
on a fruit or vegetable of their choice.
Their presentations include nutritional information,
selection and storage tips, and two interesting facts.
Their creative use of technology always impresses me!
And then we make Fruit Pizzas...notice our crust.
We make our own with the whole grain goodness of rolled oats.
(The recipe calls for nuts, but due to allergies, we do not use them at school.)
The cream cheese layer uses the pineapple juice
from the can of tidbits.
Speaking of creativity...
I challenge them to think of the color placement of their fruits
to create a pleasant presentation.
We discuss the different forms of fruit...
fresh, canned, frozen and dried.
We talk about reading the can's label to see what the fruit is packed in
and to be sure get the style that meets your needs.
Pay attention to peak season and the prices.
Nice work, everyone!
Nutritious, Delicious, and a Little bit of Fun!
Let me know if you try it.
