Students eat healthy spiders

Students in the Save the Children after-school Literacy program recently ate spiders! They actually made them first and then ate them. Karetha Miller, program director, is partnering with Coordinated School Health to bring a healthy snack/reading lesson to the children once a month. This month we read “How Spider Saved Halloween.” Spider turned himself into a pumpkin to scare away some bullies who were stealing candy. Following the story, students made “Spiders” from tangerines, cloves, and chenille sticks. Then they ate them!! (Well, not the chenille sticks!) We had lots of fun and can’t wait to see what we get to “gobble” up in November!!!
