Maryville Middle School sixth grade science teacher Chelli Green uses food to teach a variety of lessons.
Chloe Nielson and Mariah Wiederholt flip pancakes, September 23, as part of a science lesson on chemical and physical changes. The girls said making pancakes creates a chemical change because the cooking changes the subject.
Avery White and Trent Townsend wear safety goggles while roasting marshmallows. White explained that roasting marshmallows is a chemical change.
“Anytime you can involve food, you have their attention,” Green said. “It’s fun and rewarding because they get to eat it.”
