One of my students was having a rough time of it today. I know he loves to cook, so I offered him my cute little pumpkins to cook in a pie. It worked for a while, but I needed more ingredients than we had in the classroom, and will have to bake it tomorrow. We got the pumpkin carved and cooked, and roasted the seeds for snacking. Cooking is a good opportunity to teach hygiene, fractions, recipe reading, job sharing and patience. Eating the fruits of our efforts is a lot of fun, too.
