No Bake Cooking in the Classroom (Virtual): Banana Bread Balls
This was the most unique unit I have EVER taught and I’m so happy I broke out of my comfort zone to do it, because it was super fun. Edible science! Science in the kitchen! No bake cooking in the classroom.
Science: Let’s talk about how heavy cream becomes butter, how yeast makes bread rise, the binding properties of sugar or how effervescent materials work.
Math: Let’s ensure we properly measure our ingredients. And I mean, one student even said, “Oh! I’m learning about fractions in math!” *Ah ha moment*
Tech: Let’s use these tools to hone our cooking skills. Tech does not mean robots and gadgets. Tech is anything we use to help with work or improve a skill. We use tech even when we think we aren’t.
Engineering: When do we not say, “let’s make this better!” when we cook, it’s a natural part of the process.
