I developed this unit based on my kids ages (4 and 6) and their learning needs. For example, currently my 4-year old has difficulties with number 7, so the math calculations included in this unit often involve number 7. You can adapt it to your kids, as you see fit. It’s available to you as a Free Printable at the end of this post.
Summary: Princess Paulina is funny and quick-witted. At the start of the story she thinks she wants to marry a prince and become a full time princess, but a few life changing experiences convince her that she would rather pursue other goals in life.

does the raw dough taste? How does the
cooked pizza dough taste? Is there a
difference? Which one is tastier? How does cooking change meat? How does heat change a pancake?
interesting, easily observable changes involved in the process of making pizza.
into its initial ingredients?
bottom of the pizza to divide it in half.
Count how many parts of pizza they have.
Ask the kids to draw a line inside the pizza circle from left to
write. Count how many pieces of pizza they
have now. Now ask the kids to divide
each quarter into half diagonally. Count
the number of slices. Eight! Now they can use crayons, markers, and
glitter to design their silly, goofy pizza. What are they going to put first, second, third, last (practicing ordinal numbering of steps). Give them scissors to cut the pizza out.
Now ask them to cut out
individual slices. (Whole versus
individual slices) Can they put the pizza back together? Finish with the pizza party and encourage them to share slices with their friends.
Pizza may very well be the most popular food among children. And it’s fun to make together.
1. Before you begin making pizza ask the kids: What does pizza look like? What does it smell like? How does it feel under the fingers?
2. Mention the history of pizza – The flat
bread, the grandfather of pizza, was invented in ancient Egypt. But the version of pizza that we know today,
with tomatoes and toppings, was invented in Italy (in Naples). The first known pizza store was opened in
3. Let’s make pizza! I would suggest making dough ahead of time unless you want to make it by hand together. When pizza is ready to be assembled gather your ingredients. Ask: how can we make pizza? Where do we start? What do we do first? Then? Second?
Third? After? What do we do last?
I will post our recipe later in the week!
