Students in the Upper Elementary had an opportunity to make cookies… but they also had the opportunity to use some math. Students were given only ½, 1/3, and ¼ cup measuring cups to use. They had to determine how many of which cups to use when measuring out the sugar, milk, chocolate, and oats.
Then the fun began. They cooked and stirred and stirred some more. Seeing how quickly the chocolate chips melted was the most fun. Then they got to “make” the cookies by scooping out spoonfuls of dough on to the cookie sheets. The best part – not baking, immediate eating. Students all got a copy of the recipe to take home.
