Courses: Community Engaged Scholarship

Today I worked with Ibti and Michael, also from GWU, at the FoodPrints classroom. We were holding activities with second graders today! Prior to their arrival, Michael and I helped Ibti set up the class lesson for the day. We organized folders and papers, put names in nametag holders, put clean dishes out for cooking preparation, washed fresh vegetables and other produce, and I cut the onion (so the kids wouldn't have to because of the fumes it gives off it makes their eyes watery). Michael and I were at the seeds, bulbs, and tubers station, where we had soaked lima beans, small onions, and old golden mini potatoes (with green vines starting to sprout from them) for the kids to dissect and examine. First we took the kids outside and picked some greens from the garden and planted some radish, potatoes, etc. (I took one kid, Mateo, to the bathroom during this time as well). When we came back inside, the kids were divided into three groups for the three stations: the dissection station with me and Michael; the book-reading station about different kind of plant growth with their teacher; and the chopping/cooking station with Ibti. Each group of kids spent 20-25mins at each station. At ours, they specifically had to write down and draw what they saw, as well as differentiate the plants between those in the seed, bulb, or tuber categories. After we were done, the kids got to try what they helped make: fried rice!

The presentation was wonderful and I enjoyed interacting with people outside of the office. Although the fraternity is coed, there were no guys there. They could've gotten something out of the presentation as well which is unfortunate.

interesting experience especially when there were only women but the fraternity was a coed business fraternity. There were no men in attendance.
