Students in our Lower Elementary II Montessori classroom are thankful to Susan Goodell who shared her eperiences about living in Berlin as a child. She helped us cook the following delicious dishes from Germany:

  • Grilled Bratwurst with German potato salad
  • Asparagus recipe (Gebackener Spargel)
  • Apple Strudel

To prepare these recipes, we went shopping for ingredients in our Oakland Dimond District neighborhood.



Susan was kind enough to help us prepare the dishes.




We enjoyed the meal and invited students from other levels to join us. Susan also provided students with a presentation on Germany. The students were curious about the history of the German flag, the origin of Oktoberfest, and Susan even taught us some German. We can now greet each other at the start of the day with: "Guten morgen."
