APW fourth and fifth graders used math and science skills that align with the common core to make delicious bread from scratch as part of the King Arthur Bake for Good program.
Presenter Amy Driscoll explained and demonstrated the process of baking bread, giving baking technique tips and emphasizing the importance of reading and following directions.
The program provides materials and ingredients for the students to bake bread at home, an opportunity to put their skills in problem solving, time management and creativity to work.
The materials allow for the baking of two loaves of bread: one to keep and one to give back to the community. APW learners donated over 150 loaves to the weekend backpack program for other in need students in the district.
“It was a great opportunity for our students to use their math and science skills in learning a lifelong lesson of baking bread,” said Elementary School Counselor Andrea Swan. “It was wonderful to hear the students rave about their baked bread and giving it to those in need.”
