Need a fun lesson to end a unit on Earth Day? Try this great recipe! Or studying the solar system? This would be great for a unit on the solar system too! This recipe is sure to please with its great looks and taste! Prior to making the cookies my students and I reviewed facts they had learned about Earth day and the Earth. We then made these great sugar cookies. (This recipe is super simple using a bag of sugar cookie mix easily found at Walmart or other grocery stores).
This is a step-by-step photo guided recipe lesson that gives you great visuals to make these Earth cookies. My Special Education students love to cook and it is a great way to work on following directions, sequencing, vocabulary, reading skills, math skills and daily living skills.
Always make sure to check for food allergies in your class.
I hope you enjoy making this recipe with your class as much as I did! Your kids will gobble it up in no time! This recipe makes approximately 30 small cookies. Doubling recipes can be another fun math lesson for kids!
