Third-grade students at James H. Boyd Intermediate School in Elwood were playing with their food recently, but no one seemed to mind.

To get into the Thanksgiving spirit, they spent one morning rotating through eight interactive stations that centered on a cranberry theme.

At each station, students were asked to complete a task that reinforced concepts they are learning about in math, science and reading.

Students estimated the number of cranberries in a container, painted with cranberry juice, found the mass of cranberries, and tested their hypotheses of whether cranberries sink or float. The students even enjoyed a taste test of fresh cranberries compared to those that are canned.
