Jennifer PriceI want to hear your opinion!  What are your thoughts on school lunches?  After reading these three articles, pair your new learning with your thinking and write an opinion piece.  Your opinion piece will be on the topic of school lunches; what types of food should be allowed.  Support your point of view with reasons and information supported by facts and details from the three articles.

McDonald's Happy Meal Remains Fresh . . . . . . . . After A Year!

The next time you swing by a McDonald's to get a 'Happy Meal', bear in mind that the burger and fries you get, may last as long as the toy it comes with - And, they may even look better! Don't believe us? Then read on!

'Never Seconds' - Scottish Student's School Lunch Blog Goes Viral

Anybody that has ever been subjected to a school cafeteria lunch can attest that they range from totally awesome and nutritious, to completely gross and unhealthy. When they tend to be more the latter, some of us grin and eat it because we are starving, while others just put it in the trash and move on. One young girl however decided that she needed to take action. And in this Internet era, what better way to do it, than starting a blog?

A School Cafeteria With No Chicken Fingers Or Meatballs? Hmm . .

Unless you are a vegetarian, the concept of a cafeteria with no meat, probably evokes images of broccoli (eww) and spinach (yuck). However, ask the kids at Active Learning Elementary School in Flushing, New York and they will tell you that it's much more than that. They would know because their school cafeteria offers only vegetarian food!

              Because it's junk food, fluttershyfly12, and most junk food DOES taste good, but it is very bad for our bodies if we eat to much of it.

                                  11-Year-Old Florida Boy's Redesigned Sandbag Could Help Millions During Natural Disasters

                                  Having lived in Fort Lauderdale, Florida all his life, 11-year-old Peyton Robertson is well aware of the havoc caused by hurricanes. At the tender age of 4 he suffered through Hurricane Wilma, one of the most intense tropical cyclones from the Atlantic and then just last year experienced Hurricane Sandy, the deadliest, most destructive storm of the 2012 season and the second most costliest of all US storms.

                                    How The Removal Of A 'Nuisance' Predator Wreaked Havoc On Yellowstone National Park's Ecosystem

                                    In the 1800's the Rocky Mountain West area of the USA that now includes Yellowstone National Park, was teeming with gray wolves. However they were considered nuisance predators who killed livestock and therefore, actively hunted down. By the time the National Park was established in 1827, the number of gray wolves had diminished substantially, a trend that continued thanks to a government predator control program that ensured that by 1926, there were none left.
