The children in the School-Day Program at the Jewish Enrichment Center had a fun challenge last week: they had two asynchronous classes as part of their remote learning. The creative teachers instructed the children to use kitchen items and appliances as part of the lessons. Therefore we had to get creative at the Enrichment Center!
The first class was Music, and the first assignment was to get a few kitchen utensils such as spoons, whisks, and spatulas, as well as storage containers, lids, and cans. Good thing the Enrichment Center is fully stocked for cooking projects! The children helped themselves to these items, then happily played percussion to Mozart. The only casualty was a broken wooden spoon after a bit too much enthusiasm, oops!
For Science class the children put thermometers in the refrigerator and freezer for a minute at a time, then recorded the temperatures. The children spread out on the floor the misrad (office) to document the data.
We make it work!
