    I am looking for a simple and inexpensive recipe to use with a first grade and fourth grade classroom. I want to make a sort of friendship type bread (like the Amish friendship breads), but they all take 10 days and I don't have that kind of time. :) Any ideas?

    Do you have a bread machine?

    I used to teach a pioneer unit with my sixth graders, and we made a simple yeast bread. We also made butter. If this sounds like what you are seeking, say the word and I will post the recipe.

    I've made pumpkin bread with primary class and upper grade class. After the classes mixes the ingredients and have poured into bread pans, a parent would take it home to bake. Then the classes would prepare friendship fruit salad. Later we would eat bread and fruit salad together. Yummy!

    For a friendship loaf, what about having the 4s make a dark bread and the ones making a light bread and then braiding/twisting them together before baking?

    I like this idea! I may use it with my grade 7 and 8 LD boys who are in need of some cooperative experiences.
