Baking for ANZACs

Today in room 7 we were learning about procedural texts. 
A procedural text tells us how to do something. We were writing about how to make Anzac cookies. 
So, we did just that.
As the recipe was being made, we had to take notes about what to do, step by step. 

WALT: write a step by step instruction 
SC: Write an ANZAC cookie recipe. 

Once we had finished writing the steps, presto! The cookies were baked and we all got to taste them! How delicious. 

We also incorporated lots of maths into making these biscuits. 

The recipe we had made only 20 biscuits, but we have 30 people in our class. So, we had to work out how much of each ingredient we needed. 
First we worked out that we needed one whole batch of the recipe, plus half a batch. 
It was easy to work out that we needed 1 & 1/2 cups of flour instead of just 1 cup. 
But, it got really tricky when we were trying to work out half of 1/2 a cup of sugar! It turns out it was a quarter of a cup of sugar. So altogether we needed 3/4 (1/2 + 1/4) of a cup of sugar. Tough stuff! But we got there.
