Our first grade team enjoyed their PBL trip to Food Lion. They were given a tour of the store from front to back. They showed them each department and told them the jobs of each department. The students enjoyed getting to see Food Lion from a different perspective. They especially enjoyed getting to go inside the freezers in the back! At the end of our tour, Food Lion had a special treat planned for our students. Each student got to decorate their own cupcake with frosting and confetti. They also provided each student with a workbook and bottled water. Food Lion did a great job of accommodating all 5 first grade classes! They had a great time!
