Discover the joy of cooking ethnic recipes! Compile a multicultural class cookbook using metric measurements.
Ask students to choose a family recipe that reflects their ethnic background or one that is a long-time family favorite. Have students share the recipe with the class, and locate its origins and the sources of its ingredients, on a world map.
Students use a metric conversion chart to determine the metric measurements of quantities for each ingredient. For example, 2 cups of water is .48 liters or 473.6 mL. Write the equivalent measures on paper with Crayola® Erasable Colored Pencils. Students should check each other’s calculations and make corrections by erasing.
For a class book, write the entire recipe with metric measurements. With Crayola Scissors, cut construciton paper to make a frame page for the recipe. Use a Crayola Glue Stick to attach the recipe to the frame. Decorate the borders.
Students work in small groups to design possible covers. As a class, discuss the merits of each cover and choose the final design. Prepare the cover for the book. Punch holes in each page. Bind your book with raffia, ribbon, or other materials.
If possible, students prepare the recipes to share with classmates, either at home or school. Invite family members and the principal to share your delicious recipes. Why not contribute the book to your school library?
Create a 3-D braille chart simply with Crayola® School Glue, Markers and paper.
