Yeast & bread making

Public summary: 

Like all the best biology experiments, this is hands-on and messy! See what happens when you add living yeast to a bread mix, and don't forget to come back a bit later to see what's happened to your dough!

The idea is to look at how yeast grows and how it relates to bread making. It involves getting the kids to make bread dough.
