What educators are saying

What a fun resource. The students were engaged and helped each other. At the end, we each brought in our favourite cookie recipes, tweaked them (to practise more math) and then baked them.
Great project! I used it right at the Holiday Season and we even baked cookies to finalize all their learning!
