Home / Getting to Know Us / Black History Month Chips Project


For Black History Month, Ms. Eaton’s 6th grade science students learned about George “Speck” Crum. Not only was he a great chef, but he also created the potato chip! While learning about his creation in the kitchen, her students used their own creativity to mimic his originality. They were split into groups of three and came up with spices they would want to mix together to create their own flavor of chip. In class, the groups put their chosen spices into Ziploc® bags to coat their chips in their original seasonings. Then, administration came through and voted for their favorite new potato chip flavor. The students loved getting to know George Crum and enjoyed mixing his originality with their own.
