Healthy Trail Mix

Our Milam team prepared a healthy trail mix snack for the boys and girls in the 5th grade. The class had a discussion on what makes it a healthy snack and how easy it is to prepare. Students then mixed the ingredients and worked as a team to package and serve it to the class. It was a great way to end the week.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

We had to work together because it took teamwork on the part of the students and the adults. Everyone did their job and it was a success. The students enjoyed eating the trail mix.

How do you plan to make this Play last during the school year and beyond?

I would like the Milam team to prepare a healthy snack for the lower grades. It would have a big impact on lower grades because the Milam team would prepare it for the students.

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

Biggest challenge was buying the ingredients. Once I did that everything fell in place.
