Fifth-grade students Camila Caro, Lexi Ritter, and Jacob and Ryan Ragain learn along with their science classmates why chocolate chip cookies have a smell while they’re baking. Their teacher Dayna Britten took them to the teacher’s lounge for this Friday, Dec. 2, lesson. “It was fun because we got to make cookies and eat them,” Ritter said. “And, the cookies were really delicious, but what the main reason we did it was to figure out how the smell was created. … It was because of a chemical reaction.”
