Kindergartners at Riverhead’s Aquebogue Elementary School honed their cooking, English language arts and math skills throughout the week of Nov. 18 as they prepared a Thanksgiving feast for family and friends, held Nov. 21. 

With the assistance of their teachers, the students made applesauce, fresh butter, cranberry sauce, corn muffins, popcorn and pumpkin mousse to serve to their guests. In order to prepare each item, they learned about measurements, reading recipes and writing the recipes in a cookbook that they put together. 

The students also learned a variety of fall- and Thanksgiving-themed songs that they performed for attendees.
