Shake it Up

Students at Lakewood were challenged to bring in a photo of a healthy shake they made at home and list the ingredients below the picture. We then hung up all of the pictures to encourage other students to try out some of these healthy creations. The students seemed to enjoy this Play a lot. Thanks for giving us the idea to participate in such a great Play!

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

We discuss healthy eating habits in PE. This Play will remain posted until the end of the school year. Students can submit their photo and ingredients whenever it is convenient for them.

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

Some students had a difficult time printing their photos. I invited them to email me the picture if they did not have access to a printer at home. At school, we printed those photos and the students were able to participate in the Healthy Eating Play.
