  • Capturing Wild Yeast
  • The Effect of Temperature on Yeast
  • Reactions of Yeast to Different Food Sources
  • Comparing Internal Structures and Textures of Baked Goods. 

The kit Includes worksheets, assessment materials, graphing exercises, recipes, and answer keys. Allow 3 hours of lab time for the first four experiments and an additional 30-45 minutes for the comparison of baked goods. The kit includes materials for 1-4 students.
