  • Tasting Exotic Fruits at Ribault Middle 
    Students in Ms. Andrea Chaouloff's 6th grade Health Education class at Ribault Middle School worked on a project in which they were able to research nutrition information on various "non-typical" fruits.  Ms. Chaouloff was awarded the Action for Healthy Kids Grant which focuses on student nutrition in the amount of $1000.00.  Students spent time in class researching the various fruits as well as preparing a poster presentation on their assigned fruit.  After researching, students participated in a Talk Show in which they were interviewed about their assigned fruit.  Audience members were then able to taste each fruit, record important information about each fruit, and were able to vote for his/her favorite exotic fruit.  Keep up the great work!
