Pretzel Unit Study

Pretzels are yummy.  There's no doubt about it and as I was looking for some more fun things to do with my kids at the end of this year, I discovered that pretzels play a part in Pennsylvania's history.  I love a good soft pretzel so it seemed pretty obvious to me! We needed to spend some time learning about the history of the soft pretzel.

If you have a Pretzel Factory or Bakery in your area, then you should also go there for a tour! They often give samples and a great history lesson with pretzel-making lesson as well.  We had a lot of fun on our tour a few weeks ago! Some pics:
