Les CP font du pain

In class, the children read the book " la petite poule rousse". At the end of the story, la petite poule rousse is making bread. The children studied the recipe and learned about the role of yeast while making bread. 

First we mixed the flower and the salt,
then we added the yeast and some hot water, then we
kneaded the dough for 20 minutes until it looked like playdough.

Finally we shaped the dough like baguettes, crowns or little men.

And if you want to know our secret for a very crusty baguette, put some water on it and put in the oven for 25 minutes.
