Do you remember loving to bake when you were a child? What about baking with your homeschooler? Many of our first math and chemistry lessons began in the kitchen as we measured and combined ingredients and observed how heat transformed them. In this video, a stiff scone dough is being pushed together and folded four times by Ella, who is having to apply some muscle to the process of making a round disc.
Although Chester is too young for formal work with fractions, I can still say, “Let's divide the dough into eighths, so we can have eight equal parts.” As you can see, this process may also include an aesthetic component as he took it upon himself to arrange the wedges beautifully on the cooking stone.
We’d love to hear from you. Please leave comments!
