Happy Monday!

All blocks learned more about the Columbian Exchange and its importance to global cuisine!  In addition to notes, we watched the BrainPop video on the subject.  We practiced annotation and previewing questions prior to the video.

Warm-Up #20 will be due on Friday but we will watch CNN News in 10 on Thursday as many get a “hop” on Spring Break.

We will be creating a “family cookbook” based on items traded in the Columbian Exchange.  Students will get details tomorrow-the recipe only will be shared…not the food item.  Link for the recipe card template
