Food is a fantastic vehicle to provide an exciting learning adventure that will captivate students. Students expand their discovery of the world through cooking. This workshop will show them the practical application of reading and language arts into their daily lives. Discussions, worksheets and activities that use language arts will allow students to make sense of their world while developing life-skills to make healthier choices for their success. Students will be given age appropriate tasks and challenges, learn about what other countries eat, as well as discover how to apply language arts to build their interest in reading, writing and expressions.
