Today was an exciting day in the adolescent classroom. The adolescents happily welcomed our many visitors (mainly sixth-graders) to a fun-filled day of new lessons and food! After an introduction to the fascinating world of yeast, the students broke up into groups to conduct a variety of experiments involving sugar, water, flour, and yeast. Some of the experiments were gooey, some were liquidy, and others were in test tubes. The group prepared calzones for lunch (basically pizzas wrapped in their crusts) and continued the day with a chemistry discussion about yeast.
Have a great weekend everyone!
