We started our STEAM project today that will last until Spring Break looking at the meaning of the words bread, meal, flour, and cereal. There were some great discoveries about something so familiar that we are analyzing and will be creating.
The picture here is of Benja and Spencer doing some of the math we did to find out the square inches in one slice. We did the math model-- line segment-- to total up how many years sliced bread has been around. Be sure to ask about that!
We looked closely at yeast and gluten today and know what they do. That was a lot of cool science.
By Thursday, they will be making their own bread and you will be able to bake it when they get home. 🍞 It will be a yummy evening treat!
