Smoothie Challenge
Our class conducted a smoothie challenge where a fruit and a vegetable were combined to create the perfect treat. After we created two different smoothies, we surveyed the whole school to see which smoothie was their favorite. The spinach and strawberry smoothie won by 6 votes! It was an amazing experience for the whole school and especially for my class.

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

The challenges that we faced during this Play were that the students didn't like vegetables and didn't think they tasted great as well as students were bringing unhealthy snacks for snack breaks. We overcame these challenges by introducing the smoothie challenge and students were surprised at how great they tasted with vegetables in them.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

The students are now looking at ingredients prior to eating them. Most students are now making healthier choices for snack time.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Adults helped support the students by allowing students to create new recipes and surveying the classrooms during instructional time.
