confessions of a SLMS

Friday, November 04, 2005

My fifth grade enrichment class is overwhelmingly male-only two girls out of the 21 students. I have started a unit on cooking this month. They'll be working in groups, researching a country for a brief history and coming up with one simple recipe. I have access to a microwave, but no other source of heat available, so recipes need to be either no or very minimal cook. The boys in the class are so enthusiastic about this! It's great! They are using the cookbooks and online sources in the library--one boy was going to the public library over the weekend, too. Some colorful, easy-to-follow cookbooks you might be interested in are: _Emeril's There's a Chef in My Soup! Recipes for the Kid in Everyone_ and _Rachael Ray's 30-Minute Meals for Kids Cooking Rocks!_
