Fruit parfaits make a great class cooking activity! These individual snacks can be used to teach sequencing and practice fine motor skills. This version features local blackberries, but you could also substitute another seasonal berry or fruit, or use a mix of fruits.
Take your students on a rollicking ramble through the berry brambles! A ton of fun to read aloud, Jamberry features a boy and a friendly bear joyously romping through a fantastic berry world, and introduces a wide variety of berries that grow in our region. Read this book before a snack of local berries.
