Rub the Rainbow
During this activity children will not only be able to use their creativity, they will also learn to eat "five-a-day" of fresh fruits and vegetables as well as the idea of eating all the colors of the rainbow.
Collage & Puppet Making
Children will gain an appreciation for root vegetables while creating their collages and puppets, and learn that we eat all parts of a plant.
Children will explore vegetables and fruits first through feeling and then seeing. From seasonal fiddlehead ferns to the flower buds on a broccoli, they will see things they never saw before.
In addition to STUDIO's art activities, Teachers College, Columbia University will demonstrate nutrition experiments, and GrowNYC will provide cooking demonstrations.
