Unit Study: Days 5 and 6 (I think....)

Hum I did get a bit lost here just in case if anyone is paying attention
This week we continued listening to the The 12 Voices of Easter from Back to the Bible. We heard from the voices of The Thief. Faith, Affirmation, Courage and Adoration. We watched an Easter-related show on the Discovery Channel which cover history and theories  on the 10 Commandments. I thought I had DVR'd the actually movie, but should've know it was too soon for it to be aired, so we will look for it again as Easter draws closer.

The kids pulled papers from the vase regarding the Jewish tradition of cleaning house before Easter, and instructed to spend 15 minutes cleaning windows....thinking about placing that one back into the vase... They also chose a slip instructing them to make Hot Cross Buns....we found a simple recipe and the kids really enjoyed tasting the finished product. Mental note: Add cooking class to credits for this Unit Study....

QUICK-AND-EASY HOT CROSS BUNS


1 c. whole wheat flour (white flour can be used)

2 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. salt

2 tbsp. shortening such as butter

1 tbsp. honey

1/2 tsp. cinnamon

1/4 c. raisins

1/3 c. milk

FROSTING:

1/2 c. confectioners' sugar

2 tsp. milk

1/4 tsp. vanilla

1. Mix the flour, baking powder and salt together in a bowl. Cut in the shortening with a fork until it looks like coarse crumbs. Add the honey, cinnamon and raisins and toss lightly. Make a well in the middle and pour in the milk all at once. Stir it around quickly with a fork and form a ball.

2. Divide the ball into 6 small ones. Grease a baking sheet and place the 6 balls on it, about 2 inches apart. With a knife cut a deep cross through the top of each ball. Bake them at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes.

3. When the rolls are slightly cool, dribble the frosting mixture of confectioners' sugar, milk and vanilla over each.
