Oklahoma Farm to School: Teaching the Senses with Refrigerator Pickles

In this week-long lesson, students learn about the five senses, and then use their senses to observe how cucumbers can be transformed into pickles. This is a great lesson for students to practice fine motor skills if they are allowed to help measure and mix ingredients for the pickling liquid. Each day, students observe how the cucumbers are changing, culminating in a pickle observation and taste-test on Friday.
