The students in the English Language Development program have been working on a unit study since September called “How to Make and Apple Pie and See the World.” The storyline follows a girl named Lucy as she traveled around the world, visiting six different countries to pick up fresh ingredients she needed to make a delicious apple pie. Students have been researching information about Italy, France, Sri Lanka, England, Jamaica, and Vermont. They have been giving Lucy advice about how to travel to these countries and what to see once she arrived there. They used e-mails to communicate with her.
On Monday (12/12), Lucy came to visit her friends at Lafayette! She brought with her some apple pie she made to share with the students. Everyone was very excited to meet her and ask her questions about her trip. It was a great way to end the unit and finally get to taste the wonderful apple pie they had heard so much about!
