Did your children come home and tell you about the smoothies we made with spinach this week?? Mrs. Larkin noticed that our food service provider, Aramark, was hosting a Be Healthy, Eat Green theme for Wednesday of this week! She was inspired and approached me about doing something special for the students to get them thinking about trying some green vegetables or other produce that they may have not wanted to try before. We worked together during our presentation and showed the students how they could "eat a rainbow". The recipe we gave them included spinach, pineapple juice and bananas but we encouraged them to be creative with recipes and to feel free to add different fruits or vegetables if they would like. We added strawberries, blueberries, mango, carrots, and blueberries!
We are so excited about the FEEDBACK we received about this because of the potential for children eating their vegetables! ! We saw some pictures of friends making smoothies at home using their new recipe! We also loved the notes from families saying "It's wonderful to see her excited by a green vegetable!!
This week, grade 2 had a very special presentation by the energetic Materials Lab students at U.R.I.! We were all very impressed with their cool experiments they did with mixing solvents, showing us how the colors are created when fireworks are made and a grand finale of making ice cream right before our eyes by using liquid nitrogen!! I simply love when I can step back and witness the excitement on the faces of students! We were very lucky to have this crew troop all the way to Exeter to put on this complimentary, inspiring presentation!!
Here is a link if you want to see them preparing this for the students, listen to that excitement!!!
