The children have been compiling long lists of food they would like for the sleepover. The general consensus was a “Sunset Snack” would be needed. The children remembered the cold watermelon from last year and asked for it again. Mari remembered having the carry it back from Homes supermarket.
The list is long and includes sandwiches and onigiri snacks for the park. It was interesting that the children make a connection back to their service learning food, onigiri. The food for dinner is pizza and breakfast is still being debated.
These lists have already provided many authentic links to our taught curriculum, from writing lists, organizing data and explaining their thinking to others.
The next stage will be calculating how much food we need. Lots of mathematical commutation here.
How much milk is used per serving of cereal?
How many slices of bread will people eat for park snack?
