Inquiry Project: Golabki

When I set out to choose my inquiry project topic, I decided that I wanted to learn something that I would never think to make time for or tackle individually.  I chose making golabki (cabbage rolls) because I am not a culinary expert.  And, I wanted to try something that I would find challenging.  While I found the process of making golabki very repetitive, I enjoyed the experience of being taught by my mom.  Reflecting back on the entire experience, I have realized three things:   1)  That learning can be fun when the task is not.  2)  It is important to satisfy related “wondering” moments.  3)  Being shown “how to do it” reduces frustration.  These are strategies I plan to offer my students.
