The Chocolate Buckeyes. 1.

We have just began a new task, which is related to Autumn tree nuts. We have discovered that there is a link between cultures that was introduced during Caleb´s presentation. Apparently, in Ohio they celebrate the chestnut just like we do here in Spain. For Caleb it is called “the Buckeye”, for us it is called the “castaña” or chestnut, that is eating in Fall and specially during the “Magosto Festival”. However, in Ohio, the buckeye is a poisonous chestnut, that cannot be eaten.
The chocolate buckeye was made to look like a chestnut, but it isn´t made with the chestnut. Therefore, the chocolate buckeye doesn´t taste like one.
In the following weeks, we will be creating these tasty treats with our 3rd. and 4th. grade students. In the meantime, here are some links to how to make them.

Columbus, OH

In Caleb´s first task with us, he was asked to introduce a presentation about his home town. He made the power point with pictures describing his life before Spain, by creating a visualization of his life including his family, school life, university, sports and leasure activities.
Let´s have a look at it, since you will find it very interested.
