The students worked, created, learned, had fun!!!!!!


Creativity and Innovation in the Home Economics lesson

Topic chosen: Cooking with our parents

On that day (26th of February), students from the A7 class together with their parents from four different countries (Belgium, Czech republic, Russia and Africa-Congo) cooked traditional dishes that their parents had suggested.

  • The students had previously searched and prepared brief power point presentations on the nutritional habits of the countries chosen. In this activity two other classes A5 and A6 were involved

  • The students also studied the history of “Piniata” ( a Mexican traditional creation) and prepared one by themselves!

  • The parents came to the school and cooked together with the students.

  • The students then evaluated the dishes they had cooked regarding taste, nutritional values and appearance.
