What do you serve when you want students to learn about fish, high in protein, low in calories? I wanted to expose them to sushi. So, Mrs. Brown took a field trip to Ichiban in Asheville and met the owner Richard. He and his staff were incredibly nice and welcomed me to learn this art.
I made my very first California roll.
And now I am ready to teach my class.
Check out the octopus in the fridge.
I was surprised how many of the students enjoyed sushi.
It was very funny watching others like Tae, try it for the first time.
Darrion likes it his first time ever.
Several students gave the method a whirl.
Cade has some tidying to work on.
He claims it tastes just as good!
Eli, on the other hand, is quite the expert. In fact, we borrowed his personal mat.
Now you see why.
Yarah did a great job on her first try.
She eats sushi regularly and knows what it should look like.
I was impressed that nearly 100% of the kiddos tried it.
We had fresh ginger and sriracha and wasabi sauce, sweet rice, nori, chopsticks and the works.
No matter what the sushi looked like, the kids had a great experience learning and remembering that fish is high in protein and low in calories, don’t you think?
Sushi, it’s what’s for snack, in foods lab.
