Pinterest and Twitter

My Pinterest and Twitter pages are another way to learn more about both the kitchen classroom and garden classroom.

Jennifer Ransom's insight:

I have created a Pinterest board called Edible Schoolyard which has a collection of articles on both the kitchen and garden classroom.  My Pinterest board can be used to learn about both the kitchen classroom and garden classroom.  The following is the link to my Pinterest board: http://www.pinterest.com/jenniferransom3/edible-schoolyard/

   


I have also tweeted out the articles on both the kitchen classroom and garden classroom and I have also re-tweeted some of Edible Schoolyard’s tweets about the program.  You can view these tweets by visiting my twitter page https://twitter.com/jen_ransom ;

The mission of the Edible Schoolyard Project is to build and share an edible education curriculum for kindergarten through high school. Our vision is for gardens and kitchens to become interactive classrooms for academic subjects, and for every student to have a free, nutritious, organic lunch. If this program is integrated into schools, the curriculum could transform the health and values of every child in America.
Jennifer Ransom's insight:

"Explore the Network" section of the Edible Schoolyard site is a great tool to use if you would like to learn more about the different programs that are working.  Also it is a good chance to see the programs that are close to you.

"Work AC,  in collaboration with with Edible Schoolyard NY and the Alice Waters’ Chez Panisse Foundation, is designing a new schoolyard for PS216 that will offer the young New Yorkers a different learning experience."

Writing a recipe for the Kitchen Classroom | The Edible Schoolyard Project

Writing a recipe for the Kitchen Classroom | The Edible Schoolyard Project | Edible Schoolyard: Kitchen Classroom | Scoop.it
We make a point of writing our recipes by hand and including illustrations when possible. Our tone is kid-friendly and clear. Our recipes (with the exception of baking) are quite flexible to maximize seasonality and to accommodate student input. We create our recipes to be replicable in a home kitchen with basic tools and equipment.
Jennifer Ransom's insight:

I think this is a great idea to get the students to write out the recipe that is kid-friendly.
