This simple salad doesn’t require any cooking, although the flavors are better if allowed to set for an hour or two.

Ten ants find that a cucumber has fallen and blocked the entrance to their home. The ants are strong, but the cucumber is too heavy for them to move alone. Find out what other garden critters come to the rescue! Do you see any of these insects in your garden? Don’t forget to try the recipe!
This book is available in both English and Spanish.

From Cucumber Soup by Vickie Leigh Krudwig

Read the book with your students and then make the recipe, combining science, math, and early literacy.
