WPS Grade 3 Bread Sale is Much More than Just Raising Dough
Berlin, MD – Worcester Preparatory School (WPS) teachers Ms. Annie Seipp and Ms. Hannah Showell and their students, hosted this year’s 3rd grade Bread Sale as part of a hands-on learning lesson combining English, Science, Social Studies (civics and community), Mathematics and Philanthropy.
The project is modeled like a small business, with the young entrepreneurs baking bread, selling it to Lower School classmates in “The Surfing Café,” and donating the proceeds to charity. The project involved researching ingredients, creating posters, oral reports, and rotating jobs - from baker to cashier - to learn all the facets of running a business. The class partnered with Bad Monkey West in Ocean City where they learned how to make and bake the bread. At the end of the Bread Sale, students counted the money and donated the proceeds to Atlantic General Hospital (AGH).
