Getting Our Community Involved
Students from Lovettsville Elementary organized a Fuel Up to Play 60 booth at our town's street fair. They challenged visitors to sort all of the play food into the 5 food groups, throw footballs into a target and toss basketballs into the basketball hoop. While visitors were taking the challenges, students also took the opportunity to share what great things they have planned at school to help get their school even healthier this year. They estimated over 800 visitors visited the booth over the course of the day.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

The students designed the challenges and implemented them.
