Burnaby Village Museum

Last Friday we headed to the Burnaby Village Museum to learn more about winter celebrations in both the past and present.  Despite it being rainy from time to time we had a great time learning so many new things.  Here are a few photos from our day.

Fruit and Vegetable Personal Interest Projects

For the past week or so, we have been working on our first Personal Interest Project (PIP) as we worked alongside Project Chef learning about food education. After watching this video called Austin's Butterfly, we worked hard to draw our drawings as close to the "real item" as we could. We made many drafts and requested and accepted feedback from our classmates.  Our drawings only continued to get better each time. This week we presented our projects to our classmates and provide student feedback to one another.  Here are a few of our finished projects.

Have you ever done a personal interest project?

It's Quesadilla Time!

On Friday we had our fourth and final Project Chef session in the "Project Chef" kitchen.  On our final day, we had many things to do including chopping and preparing vegetables for homemade salsa, preparing cheese, making guacamole, and preparing and cooking quesadillas.  We also learned about healthy foods and that it is so important that we know the ingredients in the foods that we eat.  On Friday's meal, we knew them all!  Here are some photos from our Friday session.

While quesadillas are often seen as snack food, for many of us they were a delicious meal.  Have you ever made them in your home?

Project Chef Day 3 - A Balanced Meal

Yesterday was our third day in the Project Chef Kitchen at our school. The focus of this day was to look at what makes up a balanced meal. Having this important information we got down to work making dough for homemade tortillas and making "Make You Strong" salad.  As we made our salad we tasted each ingredient. We really liked some of the ingredients.  Here are some photos from our morning of cooking.
