On Wednesdays, students in Mrs.Elmer’s classroom participate in one of their favorite electives- nutrition. Last Wednesday, students crafted “Bread in a Bag.” Before they could begin mixing ingredients however, students received a lesson in reading labels to understand nutritional value. Mrs.Elmer guided students in comparing Wonder Bread brand ingredients to Dave’s Killer Bread ingredients. Students became curious about the additives they found in Wonder Bread, and made connections about its flavor and ingredients! When the time came to follow the “Bread in a Bag” recipe, students had to use their knowledge of fractions to successfully complete the steps. Steven, Breon, and Awesanique are pictured here before heading home to bake their bread in tins provided by Mrs.Elmer.
