While St. Patrick’s Day typically means parties, parades, floats, alcohol and feasts of food like corned beef, cabbage and shepherd’s pie, for this school library media center it was all about fostering healthy lifestyles.
Since scholars are required to sign in each library visit, a nutrition and wellness station was placed at the sign in desk. An educational display was placed that was student created. Both groups of students, those making the edible rainbow display and the students that signed in were able to read how a healthy human should ideally eat every color of the rainbow each and every day.
When you make education and healthy options readily available for scholars, it is fun, easy and seamless.
