THE COMMUNITY FOOD CUPBOARD

On Tuesday we visited the Community Food Cupboard to further our understanding of how Martha and her volunteers support the community. It was amazing! We bagged food (and other things), gathered information about which foods would be best to request for our upcoming food drive, and learned about the efficiency of assembly lines. This activity doubled as a sound study and when we returned to school we created rhythms that represented the movement of the assembly line and shared with each other the sounds that we noticed around us as we were working. The result? A rhythmic onomatopoeia poem, of course!
