Corn is...

One thing that I love about teaching young learners is that the novelty of life hasn't worn off for them yet.
They are wowed by everything.

Like when I pulled out this ear of corn the other day.
and invited the kids to use their senses to explore a food that was so widely used by Native Americans

together we pulled back the husks and felt the kernels

we pulled away the brown hairy fibers found at the top

and made a list of adjectives describing corn
 Then the kids made their own corn...

we got the kernel effect by using Do-a-Dot markers

Those who come out to our Thanksgiving Potluck on Thursday evening (Nov. 28th) will be able to taste my favorite Thanksgiving dish--cornbread.
