This is the place for educators of all sorts—teachers, youth group and afterschool program leaders, homeschoolers, and parents—to get teaching materials for home baking.
Home baking education is a good way to incorporate multi-disciplinary content into classroom activities. Through home baking you are able to improve skills in a number of areas: reading, math (measuring, sequencing, calculation), writing, investigating (experimentation, cause and effect), history, social studies, science, nutrition and important life skills (cooking).
A 1999 study by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) showed that foods baked at home generally contain more of the nutrients people do not eat enough of. Through home baking education, not only can we teach children to make better lifestyle choices, we can incorporate lessons on the many subject areas listed above.
