The Prepare and Achieve Life Success (PALS) class at Union Elementary has been learning a lot of academic and life skills while working on their Engage 2 Learn unit. After reading The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle, they worked on a wide variety of reading skills. In addition to working on number recognition and basic addition in Math, they also learned how to use a calculator with larger numbers and decimals.
They have been learning about nutrition and planned nutritious meals for one full day. They learned that the cost of their menu plan for one day was $92.50 for a family of four.
Finally, they had to develop and implement a plan to address the question, “How can we help people who cannot afford nutritious food?”
They decided to have a FOOD SHARE. (They called it a food share instead of a food drive because they didn’t get to drive anywhere.) They collected donations of nonperishable food and took the food to the New Emergency Resource Agency, to help hungry people in the Ponca City area.
