Extra Cheese, Please! Mozzarella's Journey from Cow to Pizza [and] Teaching Guide.
This book traces Annabelle the dairy cow's milk from the farm to the top of a Friday night pizza. The book relates that when Annabelle gives birth to her calf she also begins to produce milk; the milk is then processed into cheese, and from the cheese, pizza is made (recipe included). The book features color photographs of the entire process which give young students a view of modern agriculture. The teaching guide which accompanies the book offers many suggestions for its classroom use, from ideas about sharing the book, to ideas for discussion prompters and writing, to ideas in the content areas of social studies, math and science, and health and nutrition. Also included in the guide for the book are suggested culminating activities and assessment activities. A glossary and a source list for further reading conclude the book. (NKA)
