Third-graders are combining “How to” writing with mathematics and learning about adjectives. How? By following a recipe for cranberry sauce in Ms. Falcone and Mrs. Matlock’s classes. The students measured all of the ingredients and placed them in a crock pot to cook.
The students tasted the sauce before and after adding one very important ingredient: sugar. The students recorded how it tasted, smelled and looked.
They recorded adjectives describing all of their senses. The students wrote stories using the words they recorded.
The end product will make a wonderful gift for the parents and families for the holidays!
