In team building this week, students were tasked to create a mummy! In their teams, students chose one person to be wrapped with toilet paper like a mummy. Using only one whole roll of toilet paper, students raced the other teams against the clock to see who could wrap their teammate fastest. The sharks swam off in an early lead and came out at number one with the sea turtles and whales swimming into second and third. Fun was had by all!

Yesterday, SummerBoost had the pleasure of hosting Tabitha Mays from Mountaineer Food Bank and Bruce Lloyd from the WVU Extension Office in Lewis County. Bruce did an agriculture lesson with students and discussed how seeds transform into fruits and vegetables. Students learned to identify different types of seeds and listened to how to help a seed grow. Tabitha brought fresh produce for the students to take home for their families; students received pears, green tomatoes, lettuce, and zucchini. They did a wonderful presentation to all that were involved in the life cycle of baring plants. We would like to thank Tabitha, the Mountaineer Food Bank, and Bruce for coming and for the yummy produce!
