Arts Integration at Home – Recipe for Me Part 2

Posted Wednesday, May 6, 2020

It’s time to turn those Recipes for Me into a performance! The second part of this activity invites students to create and direct movement for the different parts of their recipe. They’ll create their own mini performance in a matter of minutes. The directions for the activity are shared in two ways – for caregivers/teachers and for kids who can read so they can do the activity independently. This activity is recommended for students in second grade and above. And, if you missed Part 1, those directions are here.
