Serving Up Some Zucchini Breakfast Cookies
Superhero . . . Nutrient Style
After reviewing information about the nutrients in each food group, students selected one and created a project that represented the information. A variety of projects were presented . . . slideshows, posters, cardboard representations,games, and even a few costumes (for Halloween!). Along with the presentation, each student selected a recipe which included high amounts of their nutrient. A few brought in samples for all to try, so superheros are not only good for you, but taste yummy!
Here are a few samples, with more in the classroom . . .
What is one thing that you can do that will help you . . . Brighten Your Day, Refuel, Energize, Make you More Alert, Help you to Focus, Suppress Midmorning Cravings? And only takes a few minutes? BREAKFAST of course!!
Yes, we discuss the importance of breakfast, make a classroom breakfast, and each is challenged to prepare or help prepare a family breakfast.
Menu: Muffins & a Fruit Smoothie
|Session 2 (A Few Sewing Highlights!)|
During each quarter, 7th grade students get a chance to practice using the sewing machine. The start is slow, trying to stay on the lines of a sheet of paper. Gradually they advance to threading the machine and sewing on fabric. And finally they sew a selected project that goes home and will stay with them or is presented as a gift!
Following directions, organizing ones time, and measuring are all part of the project. Difficult, frustrating, but well worth it as projects are happily taken home. Here are a few of the final projects completed during 2nd quarter . . .
More Equipment to try . . .
Students had a chance to use the sewing machine, for many this was their first experience. But also new to try was a Go Accuquilt fabric cutter. This helped students cut the trim for their pillows - much faster and so much more accurate. Ann, owner of Quilt Stitches, also brought in an embroidery machine to complete a few of the T-shirt pillows with their names.
