Applesauce, Botanical Garden, and Thanksgiving

This week students have really been interested in cooking and creating a bakery in dramatic play. To help them understand what a recipe is and how to make something from many different ingredients we made applesauce as a class. We used apples, lemon juice, sugar, cinnamon, and a crockpot. The students were able to taste and help cook it.

This week we also went to the botanical garden on a leaf hunt. Students learned about and explored different types of leaves. They also then took the leaves and made bookmarks. 

To celebrate thanksgiving today we made pumpkin pie, learned about the holiday, made turkey hats and made mini books. The students really enjoyed making the pumpkin pie and they even served it to their classmates!
