“States and Regions” is the subtitle of our 4th grade textbook. Right now we’re studying the northeast. The overall goal is to familiarize our students with the many regions of this vast land called America, even if those regions are not home for us. The regions of the US are so diverse in climate, resources and land use that it’s almost like each region is a culture of its own. Well one of the quickest and best ways to get familiar with a foreign region (or culture) is to try its food. So that’s what we did…fourth graders, welcome to a New England Breakfast!
Our breakfast menu this morning included:
24 pack Eggo Homestyle Waffles
(six at a time for one minute in the microwave and they finished all 24)
Pure Maple Syrup
Fresh cranberries (New England grows almost 50% of US supply)
100% Cranberry Juice (cranberries from MA)
100% Cran-Grape Juice (both from Ocean Spray)
Oh yes, and a hefty slice of Vermont Sharp cheddar cheese (Vermont is a New England state)
Fourth graders, let us know what you thought of…a New England Breakfast.
