One of my advanced classes (though only 2nd grade) is completing a writing book (Write Right 3), in which the last unit covers recipes/food.
I promised them that--as part of the unit--we would make some food in class.
As expected, and as perhaps natural, it took some time to agree on what kind of food to prepare.
In the end, the students decided to do two things in teams: make ham sandwiches and make a fruit bowl.
Here are a few pics of the food-making process:
In the end it turned out quite well, and I was proud of the students for remembering to bring their food items, for sharing tasks in class, and for doing a great job of cleaning up.
They liked making their own sandwiches and fruit:)
