Recipe of Me
The purpose of this lesson is for students to understand how to navigate recipes in order to successfully prepare a dish. Students will examine a variety of recipe formats, identify common elements and choose one format to write their own Recipe of Me. They will also illustrate a favorite recipe and explore sensory language by describing items from the garden. This lesson supports the DCPS 4th grade ELA Unit My Story.
