Stromboli Lab

As we begin the downhill slope to the end of the year, I like to work through the section of the MyPlate Diagram and have students prepare dishes for each group. For the Grains group, we made Stromboli. Students first did a small Webquest on basic grain information, then watched a demonstration on how to make a Stromboli (with fresh dough of course), and then made their dough. During the demonstration, students had to take notes about how to prepare the recipe, because all directions were left off of their recipe. It was helpful in keeping students engaged and listening because they couldn’t be successful in lab without the directions!

Today, students prepared their Stromboli and then created advertisements about one type of grain to encourage others to eat more a that grain in a healthy way. There wasn’t a lot of leftovers, so I think lab was a success!

Here are links to all the assignments my students completed in the lab
