AFY was host to another great Cooking the Common Core Workshop on Friday, August 30, 2013. First year Education Outside Corps Members gathered in the garden to learn how to prepare two yummy recipes with our students while also meeting Common Core Standards for ELA and Math. The first demo was Brassica Slaw and the second one was Vietnamese Spring Rolls. Both recipes are easy and fun to make with your students at home or in the garden. For the slaw, simply shred up different brassicas, such as cabbages, kales, mustard greens, etc., then add a dressing of your choice! We made a nice ginger miso dressing and a buttermilk dressing to compare their tastes. For spring rolls, simply dip the rice paper in cold water and roll up any veggies of your choice, such as carrots, mints, sprouts, etc. You can even try and roll up all 6 plant parts. These recipes and guides will be available to the public in the near future. In the meantime, here are some photos from the workshop. It was a beautiful day out.
