The Yummy Pizza Company. A Labor Studies Curriculum for Elementary Schools.
California Federation of Teachers, Oakland.
"The Yummy Pizza Company" is an interdisciplinary thematic unit that introduces the world of work to elementary school age students. The 10 lesson outlines can be adapted up or down to be used in grades 1-5 because an attempt has been made to keep required reading and writing assignments to a minimum. Optional assignments may be added for more proficient readers. The suggested time frame is for the 10 lessons of 1 to 2 hours each to be completed in 2 weeks. For those using a thematic approach, the lessons can be expanded to cover a whole day through tie-ins to other curriculum areas. (RJC)
