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! Lots 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.
The students also visited a center where they learned how to Polka, art station (drew pictures of pop art), and they created Pittsburgh trading cards.
The day ended in true Pittsburgh style with a tailgate party!
One of the talented moms at the school made aprons for all the teachers…
And how about these adorable pierogie hair clips…
I love a fun day to celebrate learning! Does you school do anything fun to celebrate the city you all come from?
