Students Cultural Experiental Learning 2012

After many years of having my fifth grade students correspond with Petals students as pen pals, we came up with a great way to celebrate and experience a little bit of the Petals culture. In our new organic garden, we planted corn and kale. We harvested the kale in June, but the corn wasn’t ready yet. Mrs. Morgan made two kale recipes, one from Lilian and another found online, and Mrs. Hickey, a parent of one of the students who lived in Tanzania, made ugali. We ate with our hands. All but one of the students tried the food, and most really enjoyed it!
