Reflection: Complex Tasks CLOSE Soup: Reading a Recipe - Section 2: Look and Find


For this lesson, I selected a  simple kids recipe for students to tackle and practice with. For their first few I want them to practice the annotating, clarification, and the reading process that goes into reading recipes. I will want to increase the complexity throughout the year. Later on, I will look for some that have more complex ingredients or directions. I will also ask them to do more converting with measurements.

CLOSE Soup: Reading a Recipe

Unit 22: CLOSE Readings
Lesson 5 of 8

Objective: SWBAT determine, and convert measurements of a recipe in order to connect their use in life.

Big Idea: Reading a recipe is a skill and often students do not realize that recipe can come in many shapes and forms. They must read them CLOSELY to makes sure they get the outcome they are looking for.
