The Problem

Last year our fourth grade students completed a problem-based learning (PBL) unit on Healthy Choices which focused on making healthy food choices. We also received a reading award to build a mobile reading cart for our school. For this project, I want to combine the two programs in order to provide healthy snacks for students while they are reading. This project will provide the funds needed to offer students healthy food choices while they enjoy reading quality literature.

Our Plan

Our reading cart travels around to various classrooms. This project will provide the funds to purchase healthy snacks to place on the cart as it travels throughout the school. Students will be able to snack on fruits and vegetables while reading their favorite books thus nourishing their minds and bodies.
