Cook-a-Doodle-Doo Unit Study Lessons

Here is a sample of the lessons found in this Cook-a-Doodle-Doo unit study:

Social Studies

This story is set on a farm. There are several kinds of farms. Can your student think of any different kinds of farms? There are farms that raise just animals (such as chickens, cows, pigs, horses, and sheep). There are also farms that grow fruit, vegetables, wheat, cotton, and corn. Some farms grow plants and raise animals. Here are a few different kinds of farms for your student to explore: rice paddy, egg farm, dairy farm, banana plantation, cattle farm, and orange grove.

If older children are interested, let them choose one of the items that are raised or grown on farms. Research and see just what it takes to get the finished product.

Working Together
What does it mean to work together? When we work together we can accomplish a lot more in less time than if we just tried to do everything by ourselves. Just like the rooster, pig, turtle and iguana, when they were finished baking the strawberry short cake, they realized that by working together they could bake a lot more.

Family Traditions
Rooster says that cooking is in his blood, and that it is a family tradition. Traditions that are started during childhood are experiences that are fondly remembered, but also so much more. They can shape our character, bind together families and friends, and write the chapters of our family history books. As long as traditions are carried on, so will the joy and laughter of those experiencing them. Do you have any family traditions? Is there a skill, an event, or possibly a story that is handed down from generation to generation? Chances are good that you do. Discuss the history of these traditions with your child. If not, start a memorable tradition with your child now.
