Students in the 6:1:2 class at Westview in the Department for Exceptional Children are always ready for a chance to try out practical life skills. A recent project demonstrated that the difference between making a tasty treat and an inedible mess is sometimes in how well you can follow directions and carefully measure ingredients. Six students took on the challenge of whipping up their own no-bake cookie dough. They each closely followed a recipe for the basic dough, and then gave their creativity free rein with the addition of mini-M&Ms, toffee bits or butterscotch chips. Lesson learned, deliciously.
