Students love this project where they get to invent their own pizza. It is a great project with lots of cutting for the kids. They all start by tracing two large circles for the crust and the sauce. Next, they cut lots of tiny rectangles of the cheese. After that they let their imagination run wild and add lots of delicious toppings!
During the winter months, I set up a Pizza Hut. You can get empty boxes, cups and pizza rounds from your local restaurant. I have even gotten some old menus. The kids can make up the pizzas using felt pieces to fill the orders. I found it has helped the children a lot in their writing to have the ingredients listed in the pocket chart. The wait is long to get into this popular restaurant!
