Foods 1 is taking on a new unit, beans and legumes. We started with my prezi about bean nutrition and moved onto to trying a lot of beans and legumes. Some were happy..

Pintos are mild and tasty, Zoe might agree.

Next we moved on to learning the differences between dried and canned with the prezi and some more video clips. The students learned how to sort dried beans and founds some ugly, sad and distorted beans  while looking more closely.

The kids have learned the cost, appearance and taste differences among can and dried beans today. They have their dried beans soaking overnight and guess what’s on the menu for tomorrow’s lab?
