I came up with this activity much sooner than I’d like to admit. I had been planning on showing Holiday Baking Championship: Not the Holidays Without Pie to review the pie unit instead of to introduce it but ran into a snag with yeast dough and a delay for fog.
For a graphic organizer students divide scratch paper into four quadrants. They are to record pros and cons of store-bought crust, types of pies, and types of crusts. I ended up really liking it as an introduction and will probably do that in the future.
My students really enjoy this series. I use the first episode, Holiday Cookie Madness, to review our cookie unit. It is nice to have something like this in your back pocket for multi-day recipes that leave a spare 10 or 20 minutes.I hope what you've read is useful!
