Think Tank

For Think Tank, I created a quizzle to show my understanding of the many facts about shrimp. This quizzle includes 10 questions about many the topics about shrimp.

Go Fish

For Go Fish, I have multiple details about my fish tank. For the types of fish, I chose two starfish, two clownfish, one blue tang, and two pufferfish. For the total of the fish and the tank accesories like flowerballs, castles, and plants, it came to $228.54. For the tank I will need at least 13 gallons of water for the 13 inches of fish. I think this activity is really fun and challenging, and is recommended for next year.

Chef's Corner

Ingredients:

Biscuits:

225 g plain flour

25 g cocoa powder

1 tbsp malted milk drink (I used Horlicks

1 level tsp baking powder

115g butter (softened)

115g caster sugar

2 tbsp golden syrup

Filling:

100g softened butter

2 tsp cocoa powder

1 tsp malted milk powder

Covering:

200g milk chocolate

Instructions:

Set oven 325°F. Sift together the cocoa, flour, malted milk powder and baking powder. In a separate bowl cream together butter and sugar. When nice and fluffy add the syrup. Add the mixture to the flour, cocoa and baking powder mixture then knead together. It may take a while to become doughy but keep at it and it will come together. Take two layers of parchment paper. Place the ball of dough between the sheets of parchment and squish a little. Roll out the dough to a thickness of about ¼ inch. Cut the dough into fingers, you can use a ruler and sharp knife for this. Using a ruler and knife pays off when you put the biscuits together. The finished biscuits are about 6cm long and 4cm wide. Place onto parchment on a baking tray. Bake for approximately 17 minutes. Remove from oven . Leave in tray until almost cool, then transfer onto wire rack. Beat together the ingredients for the filling, then use to sandwich biscuits together. Melt the chocolate in a bowl over barely simmering water. Remove the bowl from the pan. Dip the biscuit sandwiches into the chocolate until completely covered. Shake off excess chocolate. Place on a rack to cool and harden.
