Topics Covered in this Unit Study:
Not to mention, I like to use summertime as a "laidback" version of regular school. This summer, we are doing a unit study on baking. Every week, we bake something new. Actually, pretty much every day the kids are learning to bake or cook something, but the unit study itself is focused on baking.
Baking is a smart and creative unit study for any grade level. My baking unit study teaches the following:
- Exploring acids and bases.
- Chemical Reactions
- Finding out what people of different times ate.
- Cultural Geography: What Different Cultures Eat
- Writing a story.
- Making a cookbook.
- How to read and follow a recipe.
