Ms. Bauserman made "Green Eggs" using Lime Jell-O and Redi-Whip. Before reading Green Eggs and Ham, students predicted who would and who wouldn't like green eggs, and they created a graphic organizer of their data.
One student said he would NOT try the eggs (not knowing they were going to be Jell-O). When they read the book, students discovered that the main character actually changes his mind about not eating the eggs. As Ms. Bauserman brought the eggs into the room from the neighboring kitchen, and the student guessed what they were made of, the student was happy to change his mind and try the eggs!
