Students Learn about Pancakes and the Tradition behind Shrove Tuesday

Students take a minute to learn a little about Shrove Tuesday. The teachers explained how during Lent, many people clean out their cupboards of fattening foods. Pancakes are one of those foods that they must abstain from. In this lesson students are taught the ingredients that are needed in order to make pancakes and then were told that they would take part in The Pancake Race contest, like they do any many parts of the world, right before Lent. Students strapped on aprons and held pancakes in their frying pans and competed against each other in the race. Afterwards, they were able to eat some pancakes with or without jam.
