My daughter’s grade level studies the city of Pittsburgh.  One of the ways they celebrate their learning is by having a Pittsburgh Day put on by the parents and the teachers.  The eight teachers set-up four stations that the eight classes rotate through.  It’s a great idea!  Pittsburgh City of BridgesLots of artwork displayed around the school.

The students rotate through the four stations when they arrive in the AM.  The main center being the pierogi making center.  A classroom is set-up with tables and all supplies to make pierogies.

The student work with parents using the recipe below.  The trays of pierogies are sent to the kitchen area for moms to boil and store in an oven until it is time to eat them.
