Production Line Simulation (Submitted by Mrs. Gartley)

Students in Mrs. Gartley’s Culinary Arts II course recently set up the classroom to simulate work stations and played the role of workers in a production line making Pfefferkuchen (German cookies). Students filled the roles of line supervisor, dough roller, dough cutter/shaper, cookie trayer, sugar sprinkler, baker, storing/packaging, and dishes/workspace sanitizing. Breaking a big task into its individual parts was an eye-opening experience for most students. Besides eating the cookies, the best part was that they all got done within the time limit!
