This resource was a hit with my students when I celebrated American Heritage Day. After assembling the wheel, we followed the instructions for making butter. The directions are easy to follow and students can look at the wheel again to recall what they did.

The packet was loved by my children! It was so helpful in extending the lesson on making butter into an entire day!
