Farm to School

Today Mae Quilty, the Farm to School Coordinator, came into our classroom to teach us about cabbage.  First, she read us a book, How Did That Get In My Lunchbox?, the story of food.  Our class learned a lot about where food comes from.  Then we sorted pictures of food and decided if the food items came from chickens, cows or potatoes.  Mae brought in some cabbages and we used our senses to observe and learn about the cabbages.  We drew pictures of our favorite or most interesting cabbage.  Mae is going to hang our pictures up in the cafeteria.  Next week the whole school will taste test a cabbage recipe.  Cabbage is the food of the month.   Thank you Mae.
