Barefoot in Suburbia

Homeschooling & Special Needs, Inspired by the Montessori Way

Geography–USA June 13, 2012

Last week, we began our North America continent study.  We decided to start with the United States, since clearly that would be a familiar topic for the kids. 😉  As part of our study, the kids planned an entire meal with foods common in the United States, and then they had to help prepare that meal.

Bug and Monkey chopping vegetables and preparing the salad.

 

Jedi flipping the corn on the cob & hamburgers on the grill.

 

The meal they chose–hamburgers, pickles, corn on the cob, applesauce, and vegetable salad.

 

And of course, one mustn’t forget dessert! Jedi chose to make Boston Cream Pie since he was born in Massachusetts. He did a really good job and only needed a little help!

 

The final result of Jedi’s cake baking! Not bad for 8 years old and only having minimal help! It was delicious…I think this kid has a future in the kitchen. 🙂
