Today, we taught the kids about whole grains, and the energy they give us.
After explaining the 3 parts of a whole grain, the children classified grains by “Go” “Slow” and “Woah”. Then, they got to take a turn cranking a grain grinder, to turn a whole grain into flour.
The highlight of the class was probably snack time- where we got to watch an air popcorn maker transform tiny yellow orbs into large white clouds of popcorn. Each child got to choose a flavoring for their popcorn.
