Our first effort at making soup—none of us had ever had lentil soup before so we were delighted when several teachers stopped by because the hallways smelled so good!!!! It seemed like the lentils exploded and we actually had lentil stew, but the none the less we did enjoy it. Hands down we enjoyed the salad and I think all of us were surprised at how good the salad dressing was…..we all were kind of dubious when we added the ingredients.
The students journals reflected that the children were using the skills they had acquired, using cooking terms correctly and for the most part using the kitchen utensils correctly. It is a pleasure to see their growth.
