4th/5th Food Network

The 4th and 5th grade students have concluded their food unit this week.  They ended in a very delicious way!  Each child became a "chef" on their own episode of "Food Network de Argentina." Students learned that soup is a very popular entree in Argentina (where we are currently "visiting") and then were challenged to create their own.  All children wrote a recipe using direction words (cut, mix, cook etc) and vocabulary we have studied throughout the unit.  I think we may see some of them on television one day!  Check out some of the pictures below...

4th/5th- Argentina

Students in 4th and 5th grade are currently "visiting" the country of Argentina.  Recently, they learned about a very interesting part of the country called, "La Boca."  In this area, houses are all different colors and textures.  I loved seeing your children's reactions to the colorful neighborhoods.  I even heard a kid say, "I want to live there!"  After seeing many pictures of what the houses look like, the students had the challenge of creating their own "barrio" (neighborhood) similar to those in "La Boca."  Check out a few of them below...
