Blades’ Milk Day

Blades' Milk Day

Blades Elementary educators find ‘tasty’ way to teach about nutrition

Fifth-grade teachers at Blades Element-ary School recently discovered a “tasty” way to show their pupils the importance of nutrition when it comes to the milk group.

The teachers conducted a “Got Milk?” day for their pupils with activities including taste tests, milk mustache photos and a slogan-writing project.

With help from several parents, pupils took part in a taste test to determine which milk drink they most preferred. The Purple Moo Moo – a blended combination of grape juice and frozen yogurt – edged out the Blender Banana Blitz – made with bananas, milk, low-fat vanilla yogurt and vanilla extract – in a poll of the pupils.

After the taste test, each pupil took a turn trying to make the perfect milk mustache.

Using frozen yogurt in a paper cup to create a milk mustache, the pupils then posed for a photo and used the photo to create their own “Got Milk?” slogan.

A sample of the slogans are: “Moooove Over! I Want My Milk!” “Drink Milk – White Is Tight,” “Do You Think I Look Pretty Or Should I Drink More Milk?” and “No Mustache About It! Milk Builds Strong Teeth and Bones!”

Other projects completed by pupils during “Got Milk?” day were computing cal-ories by using math skills and calculators, taking a quiz on nutritional facts about milk and studying different food sources that add milk to a diet.

Fifth-grade Blades’ teachers taking part in “Got Milk?” day were Kay Cappos, Christina Downes, Sharon Guy and Jennifer Szydlowski.

The “Got Milk?” day project is the first of a four-part study on health and the food groups.

Other days scheduled for later in the school year are “Green” day, “Orange” day and “Grain” day.
