Students at Clifford learned how to read a recipe and how to measure cups and spoons. They made Ant on a Log with celery, grapes, and peanut butter. My kindergarten class was able to count the number of grapes they put on their “log” and had to write “1/2” on their paper, for half a tablespoon.
The older students read a recipe and identified where to find the nutritional information and locate the number of servings. In addition, we played a game of charades using the words; chop, grate, knead, carve, and drain.
The students also saw the progress their compost bin is making!
