Our line of inquiry for last week was: “What do community workers do for our community? (goods and services)”  I shared the story Pizza at Sally’s with our class. After listening to the story and zooming in our good and services for several days, our students created their own pizza craft and wrote their first “How to” writing piece to explain the pizza making process; titled “How to Make a Pizza”.
