The seventh grade students of St. Francis de Sales School, Aston, have been busy studying the human body and its many systems. The students are learning about the nutrients the human body needs and what goes into making a healthy meal.
Placed into groups during an activity March 14, the students planned a “family meal” based on recommendations by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Each student had to prepare a portion of the meal for a luncheon, and together the groups enjoyed their healthy meals. The collaborative effort brought the classroom to the home and back to the classroom again.
The students also created informational displays of the nutritional value of the meal and how it fit into the daily recommended requirements.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
