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.
