Lesson Body:
Bread Baking Warm water
1. Students take turns adding ingredients
into a mixing bowl (flour, salt, yeast, oil, Sugar
warm water and sugar).
2. Students take turns mixing the dough Mixing bowls and
with a wooden spoon. spoons
3. The dough is left in a warm place
covered with a tea towel, and students Tea towels

5. Students will draw their group’s snack

to distinguish their response from those
of other groups.
Butter Making
1. Students analyse whipping cream using
their senses (smell, touch and look).
2. Students will pour enough whipping
cream into a glass jar to fill it half way
and ensure the lid is tightly secured.
3. The students in the group will take turns
shaking the jar until all the liquid has
4. Students revisit the smell, touch and
look of the cream and discuss the
changes and how they have occurred.
5. Students continue shaking the jars until
liquid can be heard moving about in
the jar, this is the buttermilk beginning to
separate from the butter.
6. Students can now compare again how
the smell, touch and look of the
substance has changed.
7. Students put the lid back on and shake
the jar until the butter has collected into
a ball and has completely separated
from the buttermilk.
8. Observations from throughout the
activity are discussed.
1. The predictions from the bread baking
activity are shared by each group.
2. Each group shares some of their
discussion points based on the changes
they observed in the butter making
3. The final part of the stone soup is told
and the predictions from the lesson
introduction are revisited and discussed.
4. The stone soup, bread and butter are
