What’s Cooking?

Swift students continued with more out-of-the-box thinking, turning to cooking-up recipes for everything but food! Despite being tired from testing and being ready for the weekend to begin, students still managed to read and discuss an example recipe poem. We also acted out the usage of some kitchen items that I brought from home, including a whisk, a spatula, and a grater. Enjoy this week’s collaborative efforts!
