The B.R.I.D.G.E.S. students went to Publix to purchase items for the local Harvest Drive.  The class was split up into 4 teams.  Each team had to purchase six items from a list that was provided by the Student Council Club.  Prior to going to Publix, students discussed with their team members what responsibilities each member would have (pushing the cart, writing down the prices/checking off the list, calculating the cost, and paying for the items at checkout).  They also reviewed how to determine tax; in case they purchased an item that charged tax.  The students did a fabulous job working together to locate the items.  Most teams had to access employees of Publix to help them find an item.  This was a great activity that taught the students teamwork, problem solving and the meaning of giving back to the community.
