Food Memories
Student Engagement
Kitchen Classroom
Sharing a food memory is an activity 6th graders participate in during their very first kitchen lesson. Students complete the food memory worksheet (below) in their homerooms before coming for their first kitchen class. Sharing a time when food left a powerful impression can be a vulnerable experience for some students. Throughout this lesson, and especially while students are sharing their food memories, teachers are mindful and explicit in facilitating a respectful, safe environment for all students to engage with the group.
