Team Enterprise, Team Voyager, and Team Triumph teachers decided to put a spin on learning about fractions. Mr. Pollard, Mrs. Vollmer, and Ms. McConnohie decided that cooking is a great way to teach students about fractions and decimals.

Students were given the question "How can we, as event coordinators, use fraction and decimal operations to plan and prepare a meal to show appreciation for valued community members?"

During the course of this project, students researched recipes, used fraction operations to adjust recipes, used knowledge of decimals to work within a budget, learned from an expert food service specialist and a graphic designer, and created invitations and table settings. All their hard work paid off as they cooked and served their meals to their invited guests. Guests included: Mayor Devine, Officer Nelson, Mrs. Connors, Mr. Foster, and current and past teachers from Franklin Elementary!_
