Take a look at our 2nd and 3rd graders from last year -Making Their Own Bread!

The second and third graders participated in a wonderful event last  May for the second time at Fort Foote Elementary.  The school and the PTA co-sponsored an in-house field trip for our 2nd and 3rd graders by  bringing in  The Reeds and Breadmaking EZ (www.breadmakingez.com) . It was truly a site to see as over 80 kids were seated at the cafeteria tables that held plastic bowls, measuring cups and wooden rulers. Each table was lined with white paper so the flour, yeast, salt, brown sugar and water could be rolled to make dough.

The session included an interactive, interdisciplinary, hands- on approach to learning where the kids learn about health and nutrition, math and science while having fun making their own loaf of wheat bread, which they were able to take home to share with their families. There were teachers and parents present to assist the children which made for a most memorable event. The PTA has committed to sponsoring this  an annual event each year for the 2nd and 3rd graders.  Here’s a special video of the kids kneading dough which is sure to put a smile on your face:

Here are some other great shots from the day:
