In second grade, we are learning about how raw materials come to be the finished products that we can buy in the supermarkets and other shops. We have learned that raw materials come from nature, and that many times they are taken to the factories to be turned into something else useful for our everyday lives. We have also learned about the people that work with these materials like the farmers, the fishermen, the lumberjacks, the factory workers and the shopkeepers. We wanted to know what it felt like to do their jobs, so we decided to do a little experiment in our APH (Advanced Placement Humanities) class. We made lemonade!
We pretended to be farmers and gathered some raw materials, lemons and water, and then we pretended to be factory workers and squeezed the lemons and mixed them with water and sugar. Then we pretended to be shopkeepers and went around the school “selling” our lemonade to other teachers (only after trying it ourselves, of course!)
Now we know how the process really works, and all the work that goes into the food and other things that we can buy at the store!
