On Monday, March 8 we learned about solar cooking. We learned that sunlight provides the fuel when you want to solar cook. The sunlight is converted to heat energy.
We borrowed the Solar Cookit from the Monroe County Health Department to bake a delicious apple dessert. During our preparation, we learned about the importance of measuring accurately and cutting apples into fractions. Miss Sis and Miss Debbie, our cooks from the kitchen, even stopped by to watch us prepare our dessert.
Once the ingredients were mixed and put in the dark pot, we took it outside and placed it in a nice sunny area in the Cookit kit. We anxiously awaited for our dessert.
Mrs. Dean, Solid Waste Coordinator, from the Monroe County Health Department also stopped by to teach us more about recycling. I think she was quite impressed about how informed our students are about recycling. Thank you Mrs. Dean for sharing more information about the importance of recycling!
