Breakfast is our theme for the 1st part of 6th Grade.
We will be graphing mamy different breakfasts, including several that we will make in class.
Some key questions that we study:
* What makes a breakfast healthy?
* What vitamins and minerals are
found in common breakfasts?
* How is your body and mind affected
by the kind of breakfast that you eat?
Many of the great breakfast recipes that we make in class can be found by clicking on the link below.

Advanced Sewing Lab
This year the 7th grade complete an advanced sewing project.
This project requires:
* threading and fixing the machine
* following pattern directions

This unit is a fascinating way to teach about the health issues connected to eating foods high in dietary fats.
We view sections of the of the movie, "Super Size Me". (educational version)
There is a great deal of discussion about the consuming fast foods on a regular basis. We make healthy versions of some fast foods and then graph a dietary chart. Students come away with an understanding of how foods are often better nutritionally when they are prepared at home.
You will be in for a delicious treat if you ask your student to cook some of our recipes for you at home!
