Making Marmalad Jam at Geno's Preschool

Today at the Beehive, all students had the chance to make homemade marmalade jam. First, the teachers explained the ingredients such as sugar and oranges, and each student cut up the oranges and placed them in the pan. They then cooked the oranges, added the sugar, and allowed it to cool. They all enjoyed this hands on activity.

The preschool, pre-kindergarten, and kindergarten students were able to participate in cooking the oranges and adding the sugar to create the jam. Each student had a chance to help in the making of the jam which was great to see.

Once the marmalade was made, students were able to help pour the mixture into specific jars with their names on them to bring home and enjoy with their family.
