Swedish Pancakes


Kitchen Connections: 

Geography: Find Sweden on a map. What countries and bodies of water does Sweden border? What countries make up the region of Scandinavia? What are their characteristics? 
Social Studies: Research the people and customs of Sweden. Learn how to say "Let's Cook!" in Swedish. Research what other cuisines feature a dish similar to Swedish pancakes? Look up a recipe for American pancakes: what ingredient is missing from Swedish Pancakes?
Language Arts: Write a dialogue between a Swedish pancake and New Hampshire maple syrup meeting for the first time.
Math: Write math problems adjust for yield and ingredient variables. "How many eggs do you need if your recipe now calls for 1 1/2 cups of flour" or "What quantity do you need for each ingredient if you want to make 5 batches of pancakes?"
