Campfire Cones

This school year has not looked like a traditional school, but we found ways to make it work.  This year, sadly, I held off on doing whole-group and blended lessons until the very end of the school year.  Mostly, because we needed to be able to really maintain social distancing and a reduced transfer of handled goods between students.  

I decided that the perfect end-of-the-school-year cooking craft could be campfire cones, where I could have students spaced out and distribute individual ingredients on a paper plate.  We read a story via Edpuzzle called A Camping Spree with Mr. McGee and throughout the story, it had pre-loaded questions that we targeted throughout our story that were ranging from comprehension, inferencing, -WH questions, sequencing, to other story narrative elements. 


Students were walked through the process of putting together "campfire cones," a layered waffle cone with chocolate chips, teddy graham cookies, and mini marshmallows. They were then individually wrapped in tin foil. 









Later in the day, they were then placed in the pre-heated oven (300 degrees) for 15 minutes to get the chocolate and marshmallows nice and melty.  Students enjoyed their treats and were excited at how easy they were to make!
