Summary: 
What stories might a kitchen tool tell? In the Kitchen Habits of Mind lesson, you reflected on the importance of curiosity while cooking. This activity gives you a chance to look at your kitchen with curiosity and make some exciting discoveries about everyday kitchen objects.
Student Learning Goals & Objectives: 
  • Engage effectively in a range of collaborative discussions (one-on-one, in groups, and teacher-led).
Teaching Notes: 
  • See Sharing Toolkit for Teachers to help determine how students will share and which platform they will use. Also see our student resource, Sharing What You Made to support students around creating voice memos, photo diaries, etc.
  • Some lesson plans are formatted as a fillable PDF so that students can answer the questions and return the document as if it were a worksheet. We recommend testing this functionality with your technology as it varies by device and operating system. If it does not work for you, consider using a google form or having students answer the questions in a new document and submitting their answers to you that way.
