Gwinn Students Get a Delicious Hands-On Mining Lesson
Gwinn Area Community Schools 3rd Grade Students learn about mining by “mining” chocolate chip cookies.
Gwinn, MI – July 8, 2014 – Learning has never been so delectable! Mrs. Sather’s third graders took a hands on approach when it came to learning about mining. Each student was given a chocolate chip cookie to “mine.” Each student mapped their cookie, making notes on how many “surface” chips they found. As they dig, they discover more chips, and are given an idea of what mining is like.
Speaking of food at Gwinn, we sat down to talk to Barbie Ward Thomas, Food Service Director at Gwinn Area Community Schools.
Listen to the good things she had to say about the food program at Gwinn.
