Take Me Back... Wednesday...Sorry

I love to see how far I have come with my blog. Last year, I had my own homemade blog, pretty cheesy, no followers, few posts. For my birthday this year, September... I bought myself a blog, a real one, and I love it. I can share my Farm to School ideas, Science ideas, FOSS connections, and connect with other bloggers. I watch every day to see if I get another follower. I take myself back to my first post last year that showed something that is timely...cranberries.

I think my students really loved the Thanksgiving themed activities. Who doesn't love eating popcorn and bouncing berries? I thought I would love Cranberry Thanksgiving, but what seemed to work out better was pictures of cranberry bogs, plants, and processing of the berries that I showed on an I pad. We used our five senses in the younger grades with both popcorn and cranberries. I was impressed that most of the students tried the tart treat. As for the popcorn activity the soaked seeds didn't pop, the lesson was a success, and the sheets helped guide my kiddos. I am posting the activities on TpT. Hope you like them.
The leftover berries were great. We used them to make homemade cranberry sauce. My son thought it was pretty awesome that the berries he picked for me were actually tasty once you add a bit of sugar and orange juice to the pot.
