Rice is Nice!
This week Future Scholars is celebrating Chinese New Year a few weeks early, and Ms. Charlene brought something extra special in for her preschoolers to celebrate! Room 11 worked as a team to make delicious white rice--a staple food in China--which they got to eat after it cooked in a crockpot. This activity in the culinary arts wasn't only about cultural awareness--it was also a great opportunity for our students to learn about math by helping their teacher measure out the proper amounts of rice and water and count the number of times they stirred the mixture before leaving it to cook.
