Time for Trivia With school back in swing and a year of new classroom lessons underway, why not set out to make the cafeteria a fun and educational place to visit by sharing food trivia facts with your students as they make their way through the serving line? For example, they likely don’t know that the inside of a cucumber is 20° cooler than its outside, which explains the origin of the expression “cool as a cucumber.” Wow them with the amazing fact that the largest cantaloupe on record was 63 pounds—about the size of an average 4th-grader—or that strawberries contain more vitamin C than oranges! You can fi nd facts like these on websites such as http://foodfunandfacts.com and www.funfactz.com/food-and-drink-facts. Make your cafeteria a place for stealth learning, as well as healthy and tasty meals!
