Alpha 6, 7 and healthy food marketing!

As some of you may know, I have been part of a yearlong cohort in Education for Sustainability Leadership at Shelburne Farms.  This, in conjunction with a FEED course I took this fall, has been enlightening as I go deep into the ideas of systems thinking, school transformation, and what it means to be a leader in sustainability and education.  The FEED course centered on the cafeteria and food systems surrounding it, and we even got to create and share a meal with Becky Mashak, our food services coordinator, in the hopes it could be introduced into the cafeteria.  As I've been working on an interdisciplinary Revolution unit with the other teams, I decided to work with Alpha to work on a "healthy choices" marketing campaign in our cafeteria.   We first read a really great article about how posters and videos actually make a difference in choices within the cafeteria, and then the 6th grade focussed in on creating fun characters promoting healthy choices both in poster and animation form.  The 7th grade made large scale "artsy" works to be hung in the cafeteria. Here are some works in progress:
