Kale Pesto & Lemonade
Garden Lesson #14 Grade 6 Spring Rotation
G6-14 Kale Pesto with Lemonade Abstract
Summary In this 6th grade lesson, students experience cooking and eating outdoors. Instead of the usual Closing Circle in the Ramada we enjoy fresh food and good conversation as we eat together at the long table to celebrate the last 6th grade garden class of this year. Objectives After this lesson, students will be able to:
• Read and follow a recipe and understand that some recipes are flexible and some are specific • Connect the kitchen experience with the garden • Practice basic knife skills
Assessments During this lesson, students will:
• Successfully make Kale Pesto and Lemonade • Translate kitchen skills into cooking outdoors • Maintain the same number of fingers as when they started
Communication is strengthened by following recipes as a group, eating together and sharing conversation at the table. Sustainability is highlighted by making pesto and lemonade from scratch. Nourishment is acquired by eating bread with kale pesto and drinking lemonade. Life Skills are sharpened as students cook for themselves and eat together at the table. Academics fulfill Common Core State Standards for integrating information presented in different media; following a multistep procedure; integrating quantitative or technical information; collaborative discussion; interpreting information; speaking and listening; language; and acquiring words and phrases. See Connections to Academic Standards below for details.
Edible Schoolyard curriculumemphasizes developing community and personal stewardship, along with skills that will help students navigate different situations throughout their lives; basic knife skills; reading and following recipes; tasting finished dishes; and harvesting and preparing crops with guidance. This lesson follows the BEETLES Project’s Learning Cycle (Invitation-> Exploration -> Concept Invention -> Application -> Reflection) and uses their Discussion Routines (Think-Pair-Share, Whip-Around). All are highlighted in Green* with an asterisk for easy identification. See the documents BEETLES_Discussion_Routines.pdf and BEETLES_Learning_Cycle.pdf included in Resources below for more information. Games and activities from other sources are also identified in Green, without an asterisk. Connections to Academic Standards Common Core State Standards, English Language Arts and Literacy, Grade 6
