This Friday we made a Fruit Salad!
The children brought in many different kinds of fruit to make this salad…
First we cut the bananas, this was pretty easy…
We added pineapples, blueberries, and began cutting oranges…
The apples were a little more of a challenge, but we did it!
Last but not least, CHERRIES!
Finally we made the dressing, we added vanilla yogurt, lemon juice, sugar, and vanilla extract.
Then we combined the two bowls together!
We all tried some, but of course we all had our specific fruits we really enjoyed from the fruit salad! :o)
Learning Goals Achieved:

- Compare two objects according to weight/mass(heavier than, lighter than or equal to)
- Compare situations or objects according to relative temperature (hotter/colder than, or the same as).
- Measurement. The students uses time to describe, compare, and order events and situations.
