What's Cooking in FACS!
7th Grade Family and Consumer Sciences with Mrs. Bodkin
Coming to a Close
To end the semester we will be working on Cupcake Wars. Students will work in small groups and create a Cupcake Business complete with a signature cupcake recipe, company name and slogan. The groups will design a business card, magazine advertisement and a presentation. Additionally, the groups will complete a Workplace Math Readiness Sheet in which to establish the prices they will sell their cupcakes. Students will then present their business to the class and the class will rate each recipe with stars. For example, a Five Start Hotel etc. The winning group will be named in the morning school announcements and the entire class will prepare the winning cupcake recipe. The students are very excited about this project.
Students created their own felt animal. They were required to use the 3 stitches learned in class; running, overcast and backstitch. Additionally, buttons were used for the eyes.
Each student used the sewing machine to stitch together their Trailside Pillow. Students stuffed and used an overcast stitch to close.
This War is Sweet!
Let the best cupcake win!
