Are you afraid of anything? Do thunderstorms scare you? If so, try Thunder Cake! “What’s Thunder Cake?” you ask. You will have to read Thunder Cake by Patricia Polacco to find out! That’s what Mrs. E. Palmer’s 2nd/3rd LEAP class did last week! Not only did they actually bake their own cake, her students worked diligently to create a poem on feelings, follow a recipe using their measurement skills, and research to find out what causes thunder. It is amazing how learning can be extended around one piece of literature and a piece of cake!
