Today we went to visit the Great Harvest Bread Company to see how bread is made. The lady who led the field trip was so great with the kids!
First the lady read us a book about making bread! We learned about the five ingredients of good bread…wheat flour, water, honey, yeast and salt. Most of the store breads have a lot of preservatives.
She showed us how to shake the wheat to get the grains.
This is the huge oven where they cook the bread. There are 8 shelves in the oven. Each shelf holds 6 pans of bread. They can fit up to five loaves on each pan which equals 240 loaves of bread that can be baked at one time.
Thanks Great Harvest Bread Company for a fun field trip!
