This activity was inspired by a donated book called “Messing Around With Baking Chemistry by Bernie Zubrowski . Neighborhood Work Play Kids Theatre students learned math and science through a baking experience. As they were guided through the process of baking bread together, they observed how yeast rises and bread dough expands. They learned that there is math and science in cooking and baking. Students baked millet bread inspired by reading “Mufaro’s Beautiful Daughters” by John Steptoe.
Let’s Play Mancala
Mancala originated in Africa. It’s a game of mathematical skill. A few other names for this game is Warre, Wari, Woro, Owari, Adi Ayo, Ayoayo and Kale. Neighborhood Work Play Kids Theatre students enjoyed playing Mancala using empty egg cartons as their game board and played the game with beads. In future post you will see their decorated Mancala game boards.
