Description

Engaging Introductions: Hook your students with food!
(Includes Interactive Notebook Activities!)

Why teach with food?
-Everyone loves to eat. My students were always thrilled when I incorporated food into a lesson (especially those who don't have full pantries at home).
-If you can connect it to a skill, then you are helping them build schema. So many students come into school with no schema and very few experiences under their belt (especially in low socio-economic schools).
-If you can connect new learning in an engaging and exciting way, I guarantee the retention rate will be a lot higher!

This lesson plan and materials are built around the idea that MAIN IDEA IS LIKE A DOUGHNUT. How? Well, There are many yummy toppings you can add, but they would be hard to eat without a doughnut to put them on. There can be many juicy details to a story, but they are difficult to understand without a main idea to connect to.
