Apple Tasting and Voting

Access to Healthy Foods

We held an apple tasting for each class in K-8. By scheduling during their PE and specials times, we were able to accomodate every grade over the course of the day. Festival Foods provided us with Granny Smiths, Gala, and Red Delicious apples to try. We also had a chance to share information on local apple orchards in the Kenosha area, nutritional information, and where our local farmers markets are each week. At the tasting, each student was given a sticker and placed it on a chart for voting. And the winner is...Granny Smith!

How did students and adults work together as a team?

The students selected the apple types to try, picked the date for the tasting, made signs to promote the apple tasting, created a schedule for working the event, and, in their sub-groups, washed, cut, and prepared the apples for distribution at the event.
