  1. 1. Making Science Delicious Layla Sabourian Twitter: @laylasabourian 08/20/2018
  2. 2. Our Vision To improve the health, happiness, and learning for children worldwide
  3. 3. Every Parent’s Biggest Wish
  4. 4. Yet…. Obesity is on the rise Test Scores are falling Children are becoming depressed

  7. 7. Tools: • Large pot • Stove • Knife • Cutting board Ingredients: • 2 tablespoons olive oil • 1 onion, diced • 2 cloves garlic, minced • 1 tablespoon dried oregano • 1 tablespoon chili powder • 6 cups vegetable broth • 1 (15 ounce) can white hominy • 1 15 ounce can pinto beans • ½ of 15 ounce can diced tomatoes • ¼ cup cilantro for garnish, chopped • Juice of 2 limes • 2 limes cut into wedges, for garnish • 5 white radish, sliced thin, for garnish • Salt to taste Pozole de Frijol Prep & Cook Time: 20 min Serving Size: 6 Bon Appetit!- Buen Provecho! Steps: 1. Together: Prep all ingredients (measure and cut) 2. Big Chef: Add oil to a large soup pot. 3. Little Chef: Add onion and garlic, and chili powder 4. Big Chef: Saute 2 minutes over medium heat. 5. Little Chef: Add the tomatoes, 2 teaspoons of salt, the oregano, and 6 cups of vegetable broth 6. Big Chef: Bring to a simmer 7. Little Chef: Add the pinto beans and hominy 8. Big Chef: Bring back to a simmer. Allow to simmer for 10 minutes. 9. Little Chef: Add lime juice, stir, then add salt and more lime juice or salt to taste. 10. Little Chef: Put soup in bowls. Garnish with cilantro, lime wedge, and radish. Ingredient Spotlight: Hominy- this food is produced from dried corn kernels that have been specially treated. Evidence of hominy in Mexico has been found as early as 1500 BC! Fun Fact: Pozole is often served in Mexico to celebrate birthdays, Christmas, and New Years. Country: Mexico Continent: North America Population: 128 million Capital: Mexico City Official Language: Spanish
  8. 8. Math: Word problem addition within 20 (CC: 1.OA.2) Intro: We had many ingredients in our recipe. Now we’re going to practice our addition Activity: Review ingredients: Who remembers what kinds of ingredients we used? Make a list with pictures. • Draw pictures to represent addition problems. Have students help you draw. For instance: We used 2 cans of chicken broth, 1 can of hominy, and 1 can of peppers. How many cans did we use in all? Global Awareness: Today we made a recipe from Mexico. Is anyone here from Mexico or have family from Mexico? Do you have friends from other countries? What is diversity? (CA SS 1.5.1) Intro: Diversity means there are lots of different kinds of things. Activity: Talk about what diversity means using the questions above. Where might you find diversity? Ask for examples of different types of jobs, languages, traditions. Prompt students to draw what diversity means to them. Science: How are young plants different from their parents? (NGSS:1-LS3-1) Intro: Young plants and animals look different from their parents. How do they look different? Activity: First let students brainstorm ideas. Then, provide a picture of a young plant and an older plant. Pictures of cilantro are on the following slide. • What other plants do you know? • What do baby plants look like? • What do plants need to survive? *The following activities are appropriate for 1st grade chefs ?
  9. 9. Recipe: • It might make sense to have some of the vegetables pre- cut, but make sure there are still vegetables for students to cut Ingredient Spotlight: • Emphasize that hominy comes from corn Teacher Notes Science: How are young plants different from their parents? • Standard: 1-LS3-1. Make observations to construct an evidence-based account that young plants and animals are like, but not exactly like, their parents. • Do your best to generate conversation between students and have them come up with their own ideas. • What’s different? (leaf size, leaf shape) What’s the same? (color, stem) Math: Addition word problems within 20 • Standard: CC: 1.OA.2: Solve word problems that call for addition of three whole numbers whose sum is less than or equal to 20, e.g., by using objects, drawings, and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem. Global Awareness: Who grows vegetables? • Standard: 1.5.1: Recognize the ways in which they are all part of the same community, sharing principles, goals, and traditions despite their varied ancestry; the forms of diversity in their school and community; and the benefits and challenges of a diverse population. • Diversity: Diversity means that there are lots of different kinds of things. Science: How are young plants different from their parents?

  15. 15. add visual here When cooking onions, the chemical reaction of breaking down larger sugars into single sugar molecules is what causes sautéed or caramelized onions to brown and develop a sweeter flavor. NGSS PS1.B: Chemical Reactions: Substances react chemically in characteristic ways. In a chemical process, the atoms that make up the original substances are regrouped into different molecules, and these new substances have different properties from those of the reactants.
  16. 16. CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.1.MD.C.4: Organize, represent, and interpret data with up to three categories; ask and answer questions about the total number of data points, how many in each category, and how many more or less are in one category than in another.
  17. 17. NGSS.SEP(4): Using Mathematics and Computational Thinking: Describe, measure, and/or compare quantitative attributes of different objects and display the data using simple graphs
