Giving Back to Those Who Give For our project we cooked for two firefighting stations on two separate days The Firefighters were happy for a warm meal!
What We Did? We made LASAGNA and MEATBALLS YUMM This Lasagna took a lot of hard work to make! We had so much to do. The cooking was fun tough.
Critical Thinking? In Cooking?Well, we did need to use our critical thinkingskills to chose which fire stations we shouldserve. We had many choices, but it all dwindleddown to two because of the personalexperiences people in the group had with the firestations.We also had to use our skills when we forgothow the layering went on the Lasagna. We hadto see what we already put on, and whateveryone knew they put on. Then by process ofelimination we figured out what layer we had todo next.
Cooking isn’t serviceable Actually, cooking is a service. We spent at least 5 hours baking each Lasagna. We spent quite a while just layering the lasagna! We also had to take the food to the Firefighters. It was great to see them become happy when someone actually cared about them and what they do!
Happy Firefighters We gave back to local people who are helping other local people. Firefighters have saved so many lives, but often get little in return. They volunteer their time just to help everyday people. They are out society’s Heros!
What did I LEARN? Many firefighters volunteer their time to be part of a crew. Fire stations only contain stuff that people buy or donate. Firefighters need to buy their own food. If they are out of money they are SOL. There is always one person in a fire station to take the calls in case they get two emergencys at once.
I LEARNED MORE! Lasagna is good if you use the right ingredients. It is possible to work with someone you have never really talked to and pull off a good service project. Firefighters are really nice people!
