The 22nd of November was our 3rd CL day on campus. The first activity we did was yoga. We learned about different asanas such as the surya namaskar which consists of 17 different moves. It was interesting, yet challenging, as some of the moves required flexibility. We also did breathing exercises and balancing techniques. I enjoyed the yoga as it was relaxing.
Then we divided ourselves into two groups. One group of children went to the animal shelter and learned how to click great photos with Mr. Page. I was in the other group and we were going to cook. We had a budget of ₹500 in which we had to buy the ingredients from the More mega store to create our dishes. We all shopped together in the store and when we came back to school, we got two hours to make our dishes. We were informed that the main ingredient to be incorporate into our dishes were carrots.
We formed four sub groups. My group made yummy white sauce pasta, a side of potato and carrot salad with a Greek yogurt dressing and an orange non-alcoholic mojito. The second group made delicious chicken with a side of salad. The third group created a scrumptious mac-n-cheese. The last group cooked mouth watering baked cookies and carrot juice. We enjoyed making our dishes in spite of facing some hiccups along the way.
The judges for our dishes were Mr. King, Ms. Tamara and Mr. Kells. Although we were not there to see Mr. Kells try our dishes, we hope he liked them. Mr. King and Ms. Tamara enjoyed our dishes and said that they were all exquisite.
At the end of the day we had journaling time to self-evaluate and reflect on our day. So far I’ve been enjoying all the CL activities and am looking forward to more activities.
