1‐200 Learns About Engineering  

On Wednesday December 25, Mrs. Siegman, Miriam's mom, gave us a special lesson to con nue our 
unit study of "How to". We learned that there are many different types of engineers and they each do 
their part to help us and our communi es. Engineers get us clean water, build buildings and bridges.  
We discovered that by using triangles rather than squares, our buildings and bridges are stronger and 
won't collapse as easily. Mrs. Siegman had us do an experiment with toothpicks and dots candies 
where we were able to see how squares collapse with less pressure than triangles! At the end, we 
were each presented with a cer ficate that we all became junior engineers! What a fun lesson! 

YCQ is Healthy and Wise

This month in Healthy & Wise, the students learned about MyPlate and the 5 food groups: fruits,
vegetables, grains, protein, and dairy. We discussed the importance of eating all of the food groups at
each meal in order to have a healthy, balanced meal. We also discussed different food combinations
they can use to make their favorite healthy meals that will help them grow bigger and stronger. Eating
healthy is important to help the body reactivate and regain energy to keep itself working properly all
throughout the day and night. The second graders had the opportunity to display their Daily Food Plates
on our bulletin board.

In honor of her bat mitzvah,
Dalya Koller (6G2)

will be baking and selling cookies
to raise money for ‫צדקה‬.

Delicious cookies of all types –
chocolate chip, sugar, oatmeal raisin, sea salt and brown sugar,

ginger snaps, and more! –
will be available for sale at Dalya’s home,

8702 Chevy Chase St, Jamaica Estates, NY 11432

(at the corner of Cambridge Road),

on Sunday, January 12, 2014, from 1 to 4 pm.

Please stop by!

If you would like to order cookies but can’t make it to Dalya’s
home that day, please email [email protected],
and we can arrange deliveries to YCQ or to homes in Queens.

The money raised will be contributed to GiveDirectly, an organization
working with extremely poor families in Kenya.

Recipe: Chickpea Soup
From the Kitchen of Masbia Chef Ruben Diaz

Time: 1 to 2 hours, largely unattended

x1⁄4 cup olive oil
x2 onions, chopped
x1 pound carrots, chopped
x2 tablespoons minced garlic
xSalt and black pepper
x2 teaspoons cumin
x2 teaspoons pimenton (smoked paprika)
x6 cups vegetable or chicken stock or water, plus more as needed
x2 cup dried chickpeas, rinsed, picked over, and soaked if you have time
xChopped fresh parsley, for garnish

Family-Friendly Tip:
Buy large carrots and share in the joy of peeling them together, just the way we do it at Masbia!

1. Put the oil in a large pot over medium heat; a minute later, add the onions, carrots, and garlic and sprinkle with

salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally and adjusting the heat as needed to keep the vegetables from burning,
until the onions and carrots have colored, 10 to 15 minutes. Add the cumin and paprika and cook, stirring, for
another 30 seconds or so.
2. Add the stock and chickpeas. Bring to a boil, then turn the heat down so the mixture bubbles gently but steadily.
Cook, stirring occasionally, until the chickpeas are very soft, at least 1 hour; add more liquid as necessary so the
mixture remains soupy. PLEASE NOTE: Chickpeas require
quite a bit of cooking time (which can be shortened if you
soak them first), but since chickpea broth is one of the
most delicious liquids you can make, it’s worth it.
3. When the chickpeas are very tender, adjust the
seasoning. I like to puree this Spanish-style soup, which
makes it so smooth and rich you’ll swear there’s cream in
it, but you can skip that step and serve it rustic style.
Carefully puree the soup in batches in a blender or in the
pot with an immersion blender. (You can make the soup
ahead to this point. Refrigerate for up to 2 days or freeze
for months; gently reheat it before proceeding.)
4. Serve garnished with the almonds and parsley.
