As part of the unit, Changes All Around Us, RISE high school students made Thunderstorm Pie. The cafeteria staff was involved to make this happen as part of the unit along with the study of a healthy plate. The ground beef was the ground, we substituted broccoli for the peas for the trees, the carrots were the people, the potatoes were the clouds, and shredded cheese served as the lightening. Students enjoyed making a delicious healthy plate. All students enjoyed their meal and the help from smiling YHS cafeteria staff.
