On Halloween Day at Cone Elementary, 4th graders got to play the new version of the nutrition card game Food Bike.
In addition to teaching about the health benefits of vegetables, fruits, herbs, and spices, Food Bike is being used to start the Promo Materials activity for students where they make flyers and table toppers promoting a particular food.
Cone Elementary 4th Graders had their first harvest of tendergreens on Friday, October 20th. The harvest is part of the Classroom to Food Market Pipeline (CFMP) at Cone sponsored this month by Emma Keys Flat Top Burgers.
Students watered their greens for two weeks before the harvest.
Teams took turns cutting their tendergreens to find out how much they weighed.
Team 3 took first place to start off the growing season that will run until May featuring seven more foods to be planted.
The full harvest was delivered to a nearby animal hospital to be used as rabbit food.
