Valley View fifth-graders build burgers

Ed-Valley-ViewStudents in Mrs. Icabone-Berg’s fifth-grade class at Valley View Elementary invent some crazy burgers as a response to a contest sponsored by Red Robin restaurants. Students worked as a team to design and create original burger recipes using a total of eight unique ingredients. Teamwork was not the only focus area. With the help of student teacher, Kim Belles, students also wrote a process paper with directions for building their unique burgers as well as a persuasive paper to influence the Red Robin judges. All entries were sent in for this national competition, but the fun didn’t stop there. Students ran their own “taste test” at the school, with teachers as guest judges. Even though the Baconlicious Burger won, all students had a chance to be a master chef for a day.
