FACS Class


 Weare Middle School Students in Family and Consumer Science (FACS) classes are "traveling" to other countries this year!

 

Weare Middle School Students in Family and Consumer Science (FACS) classes are "traveling" to other countries this year; starting off with The Netherlands.  6th, 7th and 8th graders are learning valuable kitchen skills, like using a stove safely and proper clean up, while preparing Pannekoeken (Dutch pancakes) Spekulaas (Dutch windmill cookies), and Boerekook (farmer’s cabbage with kielbasa).  Each lesson begins with FACs Teacher Wilhemina Bodine demonstrating making the recipe and teaching standard food safety operating procedures and clean up.  During the following  class session,  the students get to prepare the recipe themselves, sample what they made, and clean up the kitchen. As part of this unit on The Netherlands, the students also created their own Delft Blue Tiles on paper.
