Learn then Lab
Presentation: The first 15 minutes are dedicated to lesson presentation and group experiment
Lesson Activity: The next 15 minutes are spent applying our understanding in a lesson related project or activity
Independent Work Time: For the remaining 15 minutes children make their own work choices before coming back to the circle to share what they’ve learned.
Lab: Welcome back!
The first 10 minutes are dedicated to a lesson review, child sharing and refreshing our memory. The next 25 minutes are dedicated to cooking up a storm! Then, while our food is in the oven or refrigerator changing states of matter, the children have independent work time for 10 minutes before coming back to the kitchen and eating the fruits of their labor!
Learn and Lab
The first 15 minutes are dedicated to class presentation, group activity, and experimentation.
The next 30 minutes are spent in the kitchen-lab where we express what we’re learning through food preparation.
The remaining 15 minutes as our edible-creations take their form, the children choose a material to work with around the room before regrouping for eat & tell!!
