Finding Our Pot of Gold at the End of the Rainbow
Waverly-Shell Rock Middle School Ambassadors celebrated St. Patrick's Day and farm fresh cheese curds from a local dairy. Farm fresh cheese curds were purchased and dyed with green food coloring. Samples were given out before school and throughout the day in the Family and Consumer Sciences classroom.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Students teamed up with the Program Advisor to plan our Play. Cheese curds were purchased and dyed green to add some fun to our taste testing event.

How did you accomplish your goals?

We were able to use FUTP 60 funds to purchase cheese curds from a local dairy. We used a blow-up leprechaun, cow table cloth and fun beads and hat to catch students attention. Working together helped make this Play and taste test a success.

What challenges did you face and how did you overcome them?

The dairy where the cheese curds were purchased were all sold out of the green cheese curds. The program advisor talked to the dairy farmer to learn how they made the green cheese curds. We were able to then do this on our own.
