Coffee Grinding

Yum, the smell of coffee permeates the school!  Coffee grinding (the old fashioned way)was a big hit today.  This activity required multiple steps.  Once at the table, the child scooped 1 scoop of coffee beans and put it into the grinder.  Then, holding the grinder with the non-dominant hand, they turned the grind.  After they were finished grinding, they opened the drawer and poured the coffee beans into a tin. 

This work can be challenging and needs adult help at times.  It does go nicely with our smelling bottles that are out now.  This is where the children match pairs of bottles by scent.  Coffee is one of the scents in the bottles and they all know the name!  Maybe we will have to make our parents coffee one day soon...
