A representative from King Arthur Flour taught the students how to bake bread... and at the end of the lesson, sent them home with enough supplies to make two loaves; one for them, and one to donate to a local food pantry.
Paula Gray says this program fits the King Arthur motto.
Students at Bonaire Middle School said although they've baked before, they learned some new things at the seminar today.
The students weren't only taught how to make bread, but pretzels, pizza, and cinnamon buns. Ms. Gray says the best part of the job is seeing the kids get excited about baking.
The students were given their supplies today, and are asked to bring in the home-made loaf of bread to donate on Monday.
Teachers say one of the reasons why this program is great for sixth graders is because they get excited about some of the baking techniques. When Ms. Gray taught them how to twist the dough into a pretzel, or cut the cinnamon rolls using dental floss, she got cheers and applause. The other Houston County Schools which participated in this program were: Northside Middle, Mossy Creek Middle, and Perry Middle.
