I simply couldn’t settle on a spelling! So we’ve decided to go with them all!
What’s in store?
Day 1 – Chanukah: The states of matter/How oil candles congeal when they cool and burn when they melt. We will make our very own candle out of edible materials!
On the topic of matter, we’ll take this opportunity to explore the water cycle as we learn about evaporation, condensation, precipitation, and transpiration. We’ll make our own Chanuka gelt from melting solid chocolate into liquid to shape our coins and then cool them back into solid gelt.
Day 2 – Hanukkah: Oil vs. water density. Are all liquids created equal? Why don’t oil and water mix and how can we “change” that? When frying sufganiyot, why do we want the dough to float to the surface? We will make our very own colorful oil chanukiot and explore the difference between water-based coloring to oil/powder based.
Day 3 – Chanuka/Chrismukkah: Why are there no pine trees anywhere?! We can’t live in Israel and learn about oil without focusing on olives! We will learn all about the olive tree, where it grows and why it’s a suitable tree for Israel’s climate.
Then, we’ll make our very own olive treats to take home. And finally… A ChefLab Chanuka is not complete without baking our very own Sufganiyot!
