We do some cooking in kindergarten. Right now we are making pasta, starting with flour and eggs. We've made waffles, pancakes, eggs, apple juice, bacon, and other things.
This video clip gives us an idea of what some first graders didn't know about the names of vegetables. They were fortunate to have a teacher who took it upon herself to teach them the names of vegetables. At Dunham, thanks to the PTO, we take it one step further and take the students into the school garden to learn about growing vegetables.
You may enjoy seeing this video clip. It is about 5 minutes in length.
