Ironwood - Even though it's not Thanksgiving yet, some Ironwood students got a head start on the holiday festivities as they made several pumpkin pies Tuesday.

Rebecca Sim, who is filling in for Carolyn Warren while she's on maternity leave, had her class of first graders work together to make the pumpkin pie filling.

The students took turns adding the flour, sugar, eggs and other ingredients before the filling was poured into four pie crusts destined for the oven while the students went to art class.

The plan was to eat the pies today.

Sim said in addition to being a fun activity, the project was also incorporated into the students' reading curriculum. She explained the students had an exercise where they had to write the steps to bake a pie as a way to understand plot.

In addition to using the pies to demonstrate plot, Sim said she will probably incorporate some type of math exercise when the students eat their creations.
