Classroom Garden Cooking!

My students need a blender and single burner to promote cooking in our classroom. We have tons of greens, oranges and strawberries to make smoothies, and my students are excited to have their daily snack be a smoothie!

My Students

Our school in Richmond, CA is considered high poverty with a diverse student population. In fact, our school is one of the most ethnically diverse schools in the Bay Area.

The students in my class are a bright bunch and really look forward to lessons in class where we learn about health and nutrition.

One of their favorite activities is working in the school garden and then making something delicious to eat with the vegetables and fruits that we grow.

My Project

Most of the students in my class have no idea what is healthy to eat and what isn't healthy to eat. When I see what they have packed in their bags for snack, I am horrified! Lots of sugar, chemicals and highly processed foods. I changed things up this year by asking the parents to donate fruit or veggies and to let me make a healthy snack in class. Between the food that they donate and the thriving classroom garden, we are on a roll!

Our next adventure is going to be making smoothies.

We have tons of greens in our garden as well as oranges and strawberries that we will put to good use. All we need is a blender and a single burner.
