Students did a GREAT cooperative job last night! They made homemade pizza (with healthy whole wheat crust) and kept in mind the dietary restrictions of others. Then we also enjoyed healthy and TASTY homemade oatmeal cookies! Mmmmm! And under a new leadership style! Theirs!! GREAT job!
Why cooking? The daily demands of life often mean convenience food is "what's for dinner". Cooking Matters teaches a life skill that keeps on giving by encouraging healthy habits & choices now and in the future. Cooking together requires following directions, math skills, cooperation, responsibility attention to detail, leadership and patience. Practicing these skills together helps create successful life habits while encouraging students to be inspired by their own internal promise. The culinary creation helps boost self -confidence and self-reliance.
Way to go ladies! Cooking Matters @ Horizons4Girls!
