Sweet smells permeated the air during a recent activity at Grundy Avenue Elementary School as fourth-grade students began to prepare the ingredients to bake a traditional fall-themed treat.
During the lesson in Dawn Chmela’s class, students reviewed a list of ingredients and measurements before they carefully combined each one into a mixing bowl. As the students worked together to get the precise measurements, Chmela reiterated the importance of teamwork to accomplish a goal. Using an electric mixer, students carefully combined the ingredients: canned pumpkin, cinnamon, eggs, flower, nutmeg, salt and vegetable oil.
As the activity concluded, students poured the mixture into individual miniature loaf trays before baking their homemade pumpkin bread.
