|What is it? Mystery Kitchen Gadget #1|
Since our second week on line, we've been working through math and grammar lessons. We've been reading stories and books. We've been writing and sharing our writings.
Thursday, May 7 - Guess what we did?
We finally felt like we could squeeze more into our time together. We're finally back to working on our units of interest - the topics that we said we wanted to know more about.
Thursday mornings is about cooking. More specifically, tools, techniques, and flavors.
We may be online, but we still need novelty and interaction. So, last week, we reopened our cooking discussion with Mystery Kitchen Gadget #1 (see the picture at the top).
We were regular detectives - looking at this gadget's construction (parts), speculating on its action (movement), and proposing its function (purpose).
This serious discussion included a range of suggestions, such as dog nail clippers or a hole punch.
We finally discovered that this gadget was ...........! (I'm not telling. Think about it. What's your guess? Answers are at the bottom. Please don't peek until you've made at least one guess.)
Thursday, May 14 - Guess what happened!
This morning we had 10 gadgets to examine. Learners worked in pairs - two gadgets each. Their goal - decide how the gadget worked and its purpose.
We learned and just had plain fun! Laughter was contagious! Even family members joined in. (They wanted in on the action, too.)
Now it's your turn.
Here are 7 of the kitchen gadgets we examined. You tell us, what are they?
