On Saturday, October 22, our School Nutritionist, Ms. Cristiane Ribeiro, and her team shared some of their knowledge with students in Elementary. They learned about the 5 senses: sight (ophthalmoception), hearing (audioception), taste (gustaoception), smell (olfacoception or olfacception), and touch (tactioception) - the five traditionally recognized senses. Among those, Ms. Ribeiro explored the third in depth through a tasting tour. They tasted different kinds of food while blindfolded and then tried to guess what the mysterious food they were tasting was. Students also had the chance to make their own personalized fruit salad.
Claudia França and Dagilso Amaral, responsible for School Events and Ecological Projects, organized a hands-on gardening 101 class, focusing on organic vegetables. Students learned how to plant and cultivate leaf vegetables and took home a head of lettuce each.
