Cooking experiment

We were working on microbes when Raul (our science teacher) had the brilliant idea to make bread using yeast. We learnt so much like yeast eats the sugar and creates carbon dioxide and that’s what makes the dough grow we also found that the yeast multiplies at 38°C (close to the body temperature. Year six did this in two groups, one made the dough and the other formed the dough into bread shapes. We did this in the kitchen with help from Junior (the school’s chef). We made the bread using a simple recipe with flour, water, sugar, salt, yeast (fungi) and olive oil. We achieved something we would never imagined.
