What's Cookin' in Our Class?
What's the Plan?
What You Need to Know...
By the end of the learning adventure students will have created their own original omelette recipes. Our final product will be a class cookbook with a collection of their own unique recipes! Students will have a lot of guidance and activities that will able them to come up with their own materials list.
We will provide students with a number of activities to be completed at home, most will require internet access. Feel free to join in and complete these interactive assignments with them! Attached is a parental permission form to allow your child to participate in our culinary unit. Read through it, provide your signature, and have your child return the form by Friday. Please contact Ms. Maghen or Ms. Sophie for any further questions or concerns.
