Cooking the Chocolate Buckeyes...!!! Portfolio Activity.

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.
Recently, we could cook them at the school and enjoy them as well...!!!

Climate Change Videos.

We have begun a new project relating to Global Warming. We started this week off by watching a video called "Our Future", narrated by Morgan Freeman. It describes what the world looks like now, because of Greenhouse Gases. Later, it begins to describe what the planet can look like if we star using renewable energy.

We also watched "Global Warming for kids" that, unlike its title suggests, is a pretty advanced video very worthy for our students. It talks about the gases and chemical structure of Greenhouse gases. It also defines important definitions related to Climate Change.





Enjoy the videos...!!!!!!!!!!!!

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.
