Grade Level: 
While you are learning to cook, it is important to take time and reflect. You will want to notice what went well and what you would do differently next time. In this lesson, you will create and decorate a kitchen reflection wheel that you will use as a tool to prompt reflection throughout your time in the kitchen. The lesson Spin Your Kitchen Reflection Wheel shows you how to use your wheel.
Student Learning Goals & Objectives: 
  • Practice reflective thinking and responding.
Teaching Notes: 
  • If students are completing this lesson as part of the kitchen curriculum Cooking with Curiosity: Challenging Perfection with Reflection this lesson is 1.2a: The first part of lesson two of Unit 1. See the second part here.
  • For sections that instruct students to READ, you can record yourself reading aloud and send itto students. Direct them to read along with the recording. This is a helpful strategy fordifferentiating learning that supports all students, especially English Language Learners.
  • Some lesson plans are formatted as a fillable PDF so that students can answer the questions and return the document as if it were a worksheet. We recommend testing this functionality with your technology as it varies by device and operating system. If it does not work for you, consider using a google form or having students answer the questions in a new document and submitting their answers to you that way.
