Bread. Just the smell of this wonderful food can get the immediate attention of most people! So many fun and memorable childhood events include memories of bread making and baking. From holiday favorites to daily breads, this food item dates way back to biblical times and still plays an important role in our lives.
From pizza dough to whole wheat bread, biscuits to soft pretzels, bread is a fun and unusual topic for kids to study – they do love unusual, don’t they!
Each day of the study includes some special features:
When studying bread, your child will investigate the science of bread—what the steps are to make bread and what happens at each step to create the finished product. They will learn about some of the many types of bread along with their country of origin; geography lessons via the dinner plate are always memorable!
“I have been homeschooling for over 10 years and am always looking for new and innovative ways to teach all of my children… During this unit study, our family learned geography while researching the origins of different types of bread such pita, pumpernickel, and ginger. We learned practical applications of science and mathematics while watching yeast grow in bread and measuring out ingredients to bake it. My children and I were able to have excellent social study discussions around the cultures from which these amazing breads originated. Additionally, my “littles” enjoyed the art lessons derived from the coloring projects provided in the unit study… Finally, incorporating Scriptures in each lesson ties into what I am trying to instill in each of my children; a love for the Bread of Life. We learned how God has made bread important to every culture. Bread is essential, and brings families together. This study did that for our family… I loved doing this unit study, and look forward to bringing more of these studies to my home school table to feast upon!”
“Bountiful Bread is a unit study that appeals to my age range of children from preschoolers to middle schoolers. What a wonderful way to learn together – with lapbooking, cooking and investigating. This study is complete with the Biblical references and knowledge behind all things bread… Bible, geography, science, copywork, writing, vocabulary/spelling words, projects, coloring pages, reading assignments, a study of inventions, encouragement in the practice of hospitality and even daily, video field trips!“
“If you haven’t tried one of Amanda’s unit studies, now is the time. I just finished reading through Bountiful Bread from Download N Go, and I can’t wait to use this in our homeschool! We are currently learning about Egypt in Genesis and this fabulous unit study will fit in perfectly. In Bountiful Bread, you’ll travel to Greece, Egypt, Mexico and Germany. You’ll learn about breads used during the holidays. You’ll learn about the steps for making bread, and read well-loved stories involving bread. You even get to watch bread making in action! There are experiments, book suggestions and videos abounding in this great study, as well as lots of math and science. Amanda and her team keep impressing me! I am especially excited with how much Bible is incorporated into Bountiful Bread, which is the most important subject of all in our home, and the “Idiom of the Day” will be a hit for sure. This title will also keep us in the kitchen, one of the things I want to incorporate more of in our school. A beautiful and fun unit study with daily bread recipes? Yes please!”
“As I was going through the unit, I would have thoughts on something great that should be included and to no surprise really, I would stumble upon that exact thing shortly there after, the first thought was a video of grinding grain, and then there it was! Another idea was to make butter in baby food jars, and then there it was!I love the holiday and country references to bread, and the science experiment ideas! Great hands on! Reading this unit made me crave bread so much I made French bread for dinner. ;) I think it’s great!”
