Procedure

Teach basic concepts with the overhead. Do the worksheet. Make the oven.

Modifications:

If there is not any sun on the day you do this (very likely in Mass…) you should make sure the teacher can bake the cookies in the teacher’s lounge or something so the kids don’t get disappointed. Encourage the kids to take their ovens home and try them.
