Our class read the book Little House in the Big Woods by Laura Ingalls Wilder. When we finished the unit we made homemade butter and custard pies like they did in the book. We got the recipes from a Little House cookbook.  We are also going to make molasses candy the next time we get a fresh snowfall. We also had our guest presenter Christina Abramowski showed us how to make our own yarn on a spinning wheel.

 

Students made butter by  shaking heavy whipping cream until it turned into butter.
