students and staff prepare to sample recipes A recipe for learning at Brookside
Think there's nothing educational about cooking? Think again! As a fun first project for Mrs. Volkert's class, students chose recipes and created a cookbook. They had to discuss and make grocery lists for items needed and also generate a list of non-food items needed for the ultimate test: tasting!  As part of this project, students used sequencing to write recipes, learned new vocabulary, worked on writing and so much more. The students and staff put it all on the table October 12, unveiling their tasty creations, which included BLTs, S'Mores and fruit smoothies! PICTURES HERE.
