Fourth- and fifth-grade students at Star of the Sea Elementary School who had done research on a specific state or country showed off their projects yesterday at a special event. The event included games, displays and a food tasting in which students in grades 1 through 7 were invited to try different foods associated with a given state or country. The children shown here were reaching for an ice cream cone at the Missouri food booth. Coordinator Betlynda Young said the event not only helps the students be more familiar with the food of the area, but also helps with unity and understanding of different places.
