We worked with the grade 7/8 class to make healthy baked goods to sell at our “Journey of Love” celebration at Christmas time.
Grade 7/8s chose 5 recipes from the Bake it Up resource to bake/prepare. Teachers bought the ingredients and students prepared the baked goods for the event. The students then sold the baked goods at the Christmas celebrations “Journey of Love”. The best part of this process was for the students to see that adding healthier ingredients such as all bran and oatmeal to baked goods can actually taste really good. Some students asked for the recipes so they could make them at home. The students in Mr. Capaldi’s grade 7/8 classroom.
