Whole Grains

Leave a comment

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.

Check out the following book that Kaitlin and I created for the class:
