Oh, what a delightful day! A fun way to start out new unit on The Boxcar Children! We had beautiful weather and amazing teachers! First we entered "the Bakery" to start our learning.
So many fun things to learn about ... wheat, grains, expressions related to bread and more!
A display of various grains and breads. The children each had either a picture or a word and they went to match up their card with the actual item on the table.
They did pretty well too!
Can you read this list? It's expressions or saying that relate to bread in some way. An example is that wealthy people are sometimes referred to as "upper crust". The story behind this is from several hundred years ago when wealthy people were served just the upper crust of the bread while the bottom of the bread which sometimes burned in the baking was reserved for the servants or poorer people.
They learned about various grains and the scientific group/family to which they belonged. Some are actually grasses. All of this was very interesting to me as I'm learning about grains as we prepare to go gluten free most likely this summer.
Thanks Lynn and Adele for an amazing day! We learned a lot and had a great time too! I love learning with friends.
