Cooper Students Enjoy Learning about Turnips
photoAll three second grade classrooms at Cooper Elementary School celebrated the completion of their reading of The Enormous Turnip by cooking turnips in the classroom. Students were able to use all their senses by passing around a fresh turnip to feel and observe, smelling a cut piece of fresh turnip, listening to them sizzle in the pan and finally tasting them! Classes voted on how they best liked the turnips prepared: raw, with salt and butter, or with butter and brown sugar.  They also voted on whether or not they liked the turnips and would eat them again. Many of the children said that they would like to try them again and hope that their parents will cook them for supper.
