St. Charles College French Immersion Students take French to the Foods Room
The FI students integrated multiple subjects in the foods class at St. Charles College recently. They used French procedural writing to write and explain recipes as well as the particle theory for Science.
The grade seven students recorded baking recipes on the Ipads. They had to explain their work as they added and mixed ingredients. They were responsible for preheating the oven, preparing the recipe, timing the cooking, doing the dishes and cleaning up. They also had to explain the particle theory through the baking process.
The grade eight students then took the cakes, and had twenty minutes to create a cell. They were recorded and had to explain the parts of the cell they created.
Their teacher, Sabrina Rocca says it was a fun-filled afternoon with all kinds of learning – through written, kinaesthetic and oral language.
