Here is a simple way to hollow out a potato so you can fill it with desired ingredients and bake.

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Gather Equipment and Ingredients
Paddle Bit ( I used a 1 1/4in, but the size of bit depends on the size of the potato)
This is what I use for my potato, but the ingredients can be modified to fit your taste.
Step 2: Core the Potato
Using the drill place the tip of the paddle bit into the top center of the potato.
Slowly drill out the center of the potato.
Caution when doing this. You do not want to get you hand while coring the potato.
Also, try not to go all the way through the potato. This will make a mess when baking and the ingredients will leak out.
This would also be a good time to start per-heating the oven at 350 degrees F.
Step 3: Fill the Potato
Fill the potato with the ingredients in what ever order you desire.
I like to put them in layers with butter on the top and bottom.
Step 4: Wrap in Tin Foil
Wrap the potato in tin foil.
Then take an extra sheet of tin foil to make a base. This is to hold the potato upright in the oven while baking.
Once wrapped place into the over for hour to hour and a half. Depends on the size of potato.
Removed from oven and unwrap and enjoy. Caution they will be hot.
