This resource has been designed to use as a way to teach the Working Scientifically objectives apart from the core science objectives.
In the past, I have used the lessons with the class as a way to reinforce the concept of a fair test, as well as different types of variables.
Baking gives the children the opportunity to go deeper into concepts, combining them with design, Maths, and core science. I have included recipes at the start of the pack to do with the class initially and expose them to different macarons. Alternatively, different types can be purchased ahead of time and shared with the class that way.
A link is also provided should you want to access the file for editing and sharing differentiated slides on Google Classroom or Seesaw.
