Salisbury Academy students learned about finding healthy foods through a scavenger hunt field trip in the community.
As part of a unit on nutrition, Salisbury Academy first- and second-grade students visited Food Lion and the Salisbury Farmers Market. During their trip to Food Lion, students learned about where to find healthy foods in the grocery store, worked in small groups on a healthy foods scavenger hunt, and bought a healthy snack. At the Farmers Market, students met with local vendors and explored.
“The goal for our nutrition unit was to teach the students how to make healthy choices for themselves and why those choices are so important,” said second grade assistant teacher Jessica Goodman.
