Two Smaller Classes Get Together To Do BIG Things




This past week has been full of vacations at the University of Values Summer Camp, and a couple of days out of the week we've had to have class without quite a few of our campers. On Tuesday Ms. Anna and I decided to join Ms. Nazareth and Ms. Lauren in their class. As soon as we entered into the chilly room we knew instantly that we'd made the right decision in combining the classes. The lesson was focused solely on Earth and its layers and what's a better way to teach 1, 2, and 3rd graders this concept than with icecream. Ms. Nazareth came up with a brilliant idea, edible Earth's! We used pie crust to emphasize Earth's crust, vanilla ice cream for Earth's mantle, strawberries for Earth's outer core, and finally chocolate syrup for Earth's inner core. The lesson went well and it tasted GREAT too!!!!!

Wow. That looks yummy! Was the earth's crust in order of the layers? I don't know much about that. I'm thinking I could've learned something, too!

I hate I missed out. Looks like it was fun and yummy!
