Last year, not only did we cook during class, but we also had an event with our Hangout Club where we prepared a Thanksgiving Feast with our buddies after school! Since this was an after school event, we were able to use the culinary lab, which meant I was able to have a lot more students cooking at once.
What was on the menu for our Thanksgiving Feast? Turkey, mashed potatoes, corn, green beans, and stuffing. And of course, some dessert!
Once we were ready to start preparing our feast, I let each student pair up with a buddy and find the entree they wanted to make. Sasha from The Autism Helper has some great Thanksgiving visual recipes for FREE!
Since a turkey takes a little bit longer to cook, I put those on in crockpots in the morning. (The football sized turkey breasts are perfect for this!)
I don't know if we had more fun cooking or eating! Will you make a Thanksgiving meal with your students this year?
