As a part of a K-12 school we experience many unique opportunities. Â Recently, Maggie Lauer a 12th grade student contacted me about her senior project. Â The project is creative and complex, as she writes and designs a children’s cookbook. Â Maggie has developed a Black Bean Brownie recipe for her cookbook and wanted to give our classÂ a chance to make the recipe.
Our class joined Maggie in the family consumer science classroom. Â It was really awesome to let our 4th grade students make math connections as many measurements includedÂ fractions. Â After a quick glance at the recipe some students were not sure what to do when they sawÂ 2/3 cups of sugar, and started looking for a cup labeled 2/3. Â Fortunately, students quickly recognized that 1/3 + 1/3 = 2/3.
