Pre-Thanksgiving Math and Culture Lesson: Making Fry Bread!!!

I never heard of Fry Bread until I came to work with the Choctaws. I didn't know what I had been missing out on!! My assistant created a lesson on how to make fry bread and incorporated using the Choctaw language for the ingredients.  I threw in a little math having some of the students help me measure how many of their milk cartons would fill up the gallon pitcher.  They estimated because several didn't know their facts...Some were WAY off! I hope they will remember now that there are 16 cups in a gallon.

Fry bread is enjoyed several different ways.  My favorite is an Indian Taco or the dessert fry bread topped with powdered sugar and grape jelly! YUMMY!!!
