As part of their study on Johnny Appleseed, students in second grade had to learn how to read a recipe. Students learned what recipes are, why recipes have ingredients as well as suggestions for cooking supplies. They also learned how a person cooking must follow the step by step written directions when assembling the recipe.
Students were able to make a recipe called Apple Smiles where they gathered ingredients and supplies and followed the directions on assembling their Apple Smiles snacks.
Along with recipes and making Apple snacks, the students learned all about the life of John Chapman and made an Apple Fact Tree as part of their Guided Reading time.
Clearly, everyone had fun learning about Johnny Appleseed as well as how to read a recipe.
