Social Studies Cookies
Our daughter's fourth grade social studies class has been doing something very interesting. They are studying all 50 states, and when they finish a region, they have a cookie party. What fun is that to have a class time reserved for tasting cookies!! ;)
They get to grade each others cookies (not for a classroom grade, just really for themselves). There is already a list of what to try and make for ourselves this summer.
Cookie making is quite an adventure in this household. Our daughter and a friend chose to make them together--and there was a lot of giggling going on while they were measuring the ingredients and rolling the cookie balls. I was pleased to see them practicing the skills necessary to make the cookies themselves from scratch and even doing math to figure out how many cookies each classmate can have.
I was excited they picked Ohio's Buckeyes. It's always nice to represent a state we once lived in.
