Distance Learning

Baking at home launches essential living skills while achieving core education goals for literacy, sciences, math, art, and social sciences. There are many baking STEM and career connections with agricultural commodities, ingredient food sciences, retail baking, milling and baking engineering and technology.  

The list of educational resources below aim to help parents, teachers, schools and school administrators facilitate student learning and provide social care and interaction during periods of school closure. These resources are free and cater to students speaking English and Spanish languages.

It is Home Baking Association’s intention to produce resources that have a wide reach, and reference additional resources produced by member and partner organizations.
