When my teaching is inspired I not only reach my students, I reach their families as well. This photo was taken at the end of a cumulative assignment about measurement that I did with my 3rd grade class. Students were asked to use a favorite family recipe as the basis for this project. They had to write out the recipe, identify units of measure, make the recipe with a family member and complete a refection on the activity. Many of the student brought in samples of their food to share with the class. I am lucky enough to work with a very diverse group of students, so we were able to taste food from Ghana and Somalia in addition to some favorites from the United States.
