We begin our day by writing down the recipes. Just simple ingredient list and basic directions. I do not worry about spelling or who it is formatted as long as they can understand it afterward.
After writing down the recipe, the kids go ahead and get all the ingredients together.
We talk about mixing methods and the properties of the ingredients used.
One of our students is gluten free so we are making gluten free Pumpkin coffee cake.
I think it good for them to practice writing recipes down, there is a rhyme and reason to how recipes are structured and I want them to be able to start seeing that!
Once all ingredients are in separate bowls, I help them by double checking that everything was measured correctly.
Our classes are always hands-on!
The other two groups made either a pumpkin or banana coffee cake. (One of my students said she didn't like pumpkin flavor) :)
I can't wait for next week. We will start making Fairy houses!
