Over the course of the unit, students learned about shopping & budgeting, portions & measurements, how to read a recipe, and preparing a meal. 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥
We love ending the year strong! Miss Carter had a group of students experimenting with the VR. Mr Eddins has been taking kids down to the workshop to create items out of wood.
