Mr. Sadowski, Miss Wetzel, Mrs. McPherson, B.C.’s dad, Mrs. Minnucci, and H.D.’s grandpa were here.
At the beginning of the day we were looking at books to see what kind of pizza we would like. We were also trying sweet peppers. On a paper plate, we used different pieces of paper to show what we would want on our pizza.
Three of us were trying to split the pizza (the yellow piece of paper) in half and then put pieces of yarn around the whole pizza. We were thinking about how big around the circle was. We all got pieces of string to make a big circle. A whole trip around a six inch pizza is nineteen inches. One trip around the circle is the same as three trips across the pizza.
In sit spots, C.C. was looking down at the top of the stump at snowflakes that are falling on it. She could count the six points on some of the snowflakes. J.T. had a stick and was using it to write on his tree stump. He tried to draw pictures, like a sun.
We were tapping the maple tree. We drilled a hole and then tapped a spout into the tree. Everyone had a turn. Then we put a bucket on the spout to catch the sap coming out of the tree. We will have to wait for the sap to come out because it was too cold today.
In one station, we had to dig a slide. Some of us used our hands and some of us used our feet. We were trying to make the slide good enough to get the ball to go all the way to the bottom. Sometimes there were big bumps in the trail and the ball would stop and not go to the end of the slide. Sometimes it would stop on little holes. It was kind of challenging because the ball would stop on all of the ice.
Before we started making pizza we had to tear the vegetables apart. We had to fry the vegetables so that they could cook before going on the pizza. Then we started making the pizza. First we had to roll the dough so it would be flat. We cooked the dough a little on both sides. Then we spread out the sauce and added vegetables and cheese. We liked the pizza very much. Everybody tried it.
It was 32 degrees today. We had a wonderful day.
