Our next task with popcorn is to write the procedure for making Popcorn Balls. We started today by making the recipe in the cooking room. We gave instructions to the students but they never got to see a written version of the recipe, as their task is to write their own.
The students were excellent listeners (even though they got a little high on sugar after all the secret taste testing...) and followed the instructions really well. They also worked co-operatively in their groups.
When they got back to class they had to jot down in their writing books, all the things they could remember about the ingredients and the process. Tomorrow we will write up this information as a recipe for them to take home.
