Third-grade students in Liz Held’s and Beth Noon’s classes at James H. Boyd Intermediate School enjoyed playing with their food as they recently took part in Cranberry Day. Students spent the morning rotating through eight interactive stations centered on a cranberry theme. Activities included measuring the distance a cranberry will bounce, estimating the number of cranberries in a container, creating cranberry art, tasting different types of cranberries and simulating a cranberry bog. At each station, students were asked to complete a task that reinforced concepts they are learning in math, science and reading.
