Students expand their discovery of the incredible world of cooking, health, and nutrition through this workshop while they practically apply science and social studies into their daily lives. LIFE will thrill students as they discover and connect living all around them. Starting with recognizing organisms as plants or animals along with living and non-living, Chef will demonstrate and discuss the many aspects of cooking with leaves, roots, stems, and flowers. Students will learn about different animals that we eat. Herbs, spices and other flavorings are explored. A lively presentation about LIFE will show how beautiful science can be and science is a key in understanding the world around them. Discussions, worksheets and activities that use science will allow students to make sense of their world while developing life-skills to make healthier choices for their success. Kids will shine as they focus on science using critical thinking, problem solving, relationship building, and technology to develop conclusions through the living world.
