Life Skills: Grocery Shopping

Students practiced shopping for healthy foods and staying within a budget at Presidente Supermarket.  Before visiting the store, we checked what was on sale, planned meals that include the vitamins we’ve been learning about, and made a grocery list.  At the supermarket, we had a scavenger hunt to find all the foods on our list.

Beautiful

This splatter paint project is part of our unit on body positivity and positive self image.  Just like a paint splatter, we don’t have to be perfect in every situation in life but instead are enough and wonderful the way we are.

Handling raw meat safely

This week, students reviewed kitchen sanitation terminology and procedures. We discussed temperature control for safety, the importance of hand washing and gloves, and how to prevent food borne illness.

The class learned about force meats, such as sausage, and how to handle raw meats.  Students removed casings from sausage and cooked sausage and beef for baked ziti with meat sauce.
