Hi! It’s Friday, November 30, 2012 and time for a Virtual Field Trip at ClickSchooling!

Recommended Website:

Westminster Crackers

Age Range: All (with parental supervision)

Many thanks to ClickScholar Theresa for recommending this virtual field trip to the Westminster Bakers Company to see how oyster crackers are made.

When you get to the site, you’ll see a brief introduction and two options:

1) Video – Click on this item to watch a terrific 3-minute video of the entire cracker manufacturing process that includes dough mixing, cracker cutting, baking, and packaging.

2) Virtual Tour – This says it’s a “virtual tour” of the manufacturing process, but it’s really random photographs of the baking line, cooling process, box making, pallet making, shipping, etc. The real “virtual tour” is the video – so be sure to watch it.

While you’re at the site, you can read the history of the Westminster Bakers company and find out where to purchase their tasty crackers.
