The children in MCC’s Kindergarten class recently visited the College Center to create their own pizzas for a hands-on lesson and cooking activity. Math was also incorporated into the lesson; the pizzas were cut in half and then quarters, as Debra Stoler, the kindergarten teacher, explained basic fractions. The children were able to visualize the math lesson they had been working on throughout the week. And they enjoyed eating the pizzas. Chloe Jencik works on her creation.
The Veterans and Servicemembers Association hosted two representatives of the Veterans Administration at a recent meeting.
