Springboro students with exceptional needs make ‘World’s Greatest Lasagna’

The holidays are one of busiest cooking seasons of the year, and one class of Springboro High School students with exceptional needs used cooking to practice life and math skills buy preparing the “World’s Greatest Lasagna.”

The students of Room 104 took a field trip to Kroger to gather items to prepare both a meat lasagna and a vegetarian lasagna, then returned to cook both dishes.

"Buying groceries and preparing a meal for this classroom of students with exceptional needs has turned into a multi-faceted, cross-curricular lesson," said Gail Wright, Intervention Specialist at Springboro High School.

The students brainstorm meals or other foods they want to learn to make, Wright said, and this time chose “The World’s Greatest Lasagna.”

In addition to teaching students how to prepare the meals, Springboro High School said in a release, the lesson taught the students how to plan and prepare food for friends who are vegetarians or have food sensitivities, while letting them practice their math skills.
