Food: Week Four

This week you’ll be reading one of my favourite Christmas recipes, then watching a short instructional video.

First read the recipe, make sure that you understand all of the ingredients.  The cooking instructions are not in the correct order.  What would you do first?  Try to place them in the correct order.

Gingerbread Men

Next watch the video, check to see if you put the ingredients in the correct order.

For next week’s class think of one of your favourite Christmas recipes that you can share with the group.

As you listen to the story try to answer these questions:

1.  What is Morley’s idea for this Christmas?

2.  What is Morley making?

3.  What is Sam making?

4.  How are the finished presents different than they imagined?
