We Made Soup!
It's been pretty chilly around here, and we've been warming up by making our own vegetable soup! First, we read the classic tale Stone Soup. After talking about the story, we thought about what we would want in our own soup. We made a list together and chose what we would want.
Next, we took a walking trip to our local supermarket and bought the ingredients on our list. Our teachers helped us to wash and cut the vegetables. Then students were able to put everything into the pot and watch it cook throughout the day. We tasted the soup together and made a class book about the experience.
After having the experience of visiting the Supermarket, students were inspired to create a Supermarket center. We prepared labels and price tags for the food we would sell. Students love to visit the Supermarket center and shop!
