Making Thanksgiving butter!

Two students shake mason jars filled with cream and salt to make butter.

If an Eagle Point Elementary School student is attending your Thanksgiving meal, they’ll bring the butter - homemade!

On Nov. 26, Jennifer Carabis’ third and fourth-graders mixed salt and heavy cream in a mason jar and started shaking. Nine minutes later, they had butter!

Carabis’ mother did this very same project with her students, when she was a teacher, so it’s a fun and educational activity passed down from educator to educator!
