    Georgia - Fifth: Smoothie Challenge

    Georgia - Fifth: Smoothie Challenge

    At Out Teach, we empower teachers and students to go outside expectations with the power of experiential learning. What makes us unique is our ability to help teachers engage students with new content using academic standards they already teach. Through our partnership with Sprouts Farmers Markets, this model was developed to address important nutrition education content.

    Nutrition content, extensions and standards (where applicable) are integrated and taught through the lens of existing English/Language Arts, Math and Science standards making it easier to fit into a busy school day.
